In addition to the great Historical job for the P&WV
Black PS-1, and Red PS-1 C&O Box car & Yellow (wood) C&O Cab.

Well, what's your guess(s) for this newest Gondola restoration paint Job?
Historical Fall'n Flag Road & Data related somewhat to West Virginia State rail lines
WM. B&O, PRR etc. ????

pwvjer -

I know that the replicated C&O and P&WV boxcars were actually ex-USN, but what about the gon? Does it have a railroad history? Since we are guessing, and with the West Virginia "tie in", I'll guess New York Central System. Is there a prize for guessing correctly? Maybe a ride in the car? Behind steam?

Les - For some reason, NYC heritage sticks in my mind. I‘ve asked the question, I’ll post back with the response.

As to what paint scheme will be applied, there’s no contest but they do like to tease their fans a bit by not saying until the car is done or someone guesses correctly. At least that’s how they handled the P&WV boxcar announcement.

Word is the gondola might be originally be from SCL. Scratch the the NYC thought - that was a different conversation about different cars.
