40-foot boxcar w/sliding doors, New Haven (NH 34013).
I started with the stock Atlas model pre-decorated for New Haven, and removed the reporting
marks and class along with the build and service dates. The black door was replaced with
a freight-car-red door from the Lehigh Valley model. The DF graphic and class
designation were taken from Microscale's New Haven freight set, while the reporting marks
and dates were custom made to match the Atlas artwork.
The car was sprayed with a flat clear coat, and weathered with pastels.
The Barber S-2A trucks were replaced with more appropriate BLMA ASF A-3 trucks, and the
Accu-Mate couplers were replaced with Micro-Trains couplers.
