IHB boxcar finished


Tim O'Connor
 


The C&A was a B&O subsidiary and later was absorbed into the GM&O but in 1950 there were still
a small number of 40 foot War Emergency (51000 series) and all steel 40 foot (52000 series) box cars
that still had their C&A lettering...  :-)

Having started with the Mopac and having to see interchange made between the MP/TP/C&EI/M-I, I’m drawn (for some odd reasoning), to the various subsidiaries the Class Ones had. So the layout has a small population of FW&D, T&NO, I-GN, StLB&M, B&A, P&LE, NJI&I and now an IHB car.

Another NYC subject (this makes three) recent builds; the National Scale Car decals are so well researched I used them on the Tichy kit, the Westerfield modernized 1916 boxcar and Intermountain’s 10’6” 40’ boxcar. TruColor Rock Island FCB mixed with a couple drops of ART yellow for the carbody. Light weathering with colored pencils and a few chalk marks with white pencil.  I upgraded the kits parts with wire handgrabs, flexible rubber air hoses and Tangent cut levers.

The decals showed a light weight ‘new’ year of 1944.

Those Tichy kits are very underrated. Sure wish the Tooling & Die guy had got around to making some additional prototypes.   
Your build is beautiful. On the IHB decals, any information on when that scheme was first used?
