50-foot automobile boxcar w/end doors, Lehigh Valley (LV 8505).
I started with the stock Atlas Micro-Trains model pre-decorated for Lehigh Valley, and removed the trucks and plastic
roofwalk. I added a Fox Valley laser-cut wood roofwalk and wire roof grab irons, as well
as Trainworx ASF A-3 trucks. The roofwalk was stained with alcohol and inks before the body
was masked and the roof sprayed to match the existing paint.
The car was then sprayed with a flat clear coat, and weathered with pastels.
Micro-Trains couplers were body-mounted.
