BN 249241 (EX-RBOX) ACF box car
I promise not to bore you with too many more! Hehe. I just like this former RAIL BOX car that was purchased by BURLINGTON NORTHERN. It's based on a real car and I even tried to copy the graffiti. This is MrKLUKE car#118 and it features some different things for me. First, I modified the door so it more closely matched the real one. It is definitely a "rookie door" with mixed results. The next time I try that it will turn out better. Second, the INTERIOR is weathered. First I painted it an off-white and then I added grime and scrapes from the forklifts. I really hate the floor color...it's all wrong. On the other hand, I love the roof color. RAIL BOX box cars are a weatherer's best friend. Most major railroads have bought them so they are EVERYWHERE.
