The 220 I could read easily and it came through on other parts of the car too. The mystery was the last 3 digits. I carefully sanded the number one afternoon and reviled the 838. Tough to see in the photo but it was clear as day right in front of it. I also had several other people climb under to look and concern.



Scott -

Yes, sandpaper is your friend!

Beautiful job. Did someone make the stencils for you or did you take creativity and make them yourself? I'm still looking for a big B&O for my boxcar...

Just out of curiosity, how much did it cost to move the hopper over the road? With the car being its size and requiring no cranes to move it, it must have been a lot more cheaper than say moving a 40' boxcar which sometimes requires two cranes and two trailers.
