N Scale: Around 1957, Ontario Northland found themselves with a temporary glut of hoppers. ONT made an arrangement with Chesapeake & Ohio and these 3-bay offset side hoppers were sent south to move coal on the C&O. They were not renumbered so to prevent C&O agents from routing the empty cars back to Canada, they received what must be the largest routing instructions ever applied to car sides: TIDE COAL ONLY. WHEN EMPTY RETURN TO HANDLEY FROM THE WEST OR THURMOND FROM THE EAST, C&O RWY.  MUST NOT BE LOADED TO OR MOVED TO CANADA. The cars were eventually returned to ONT, and could be found in the mid-60s assigned to the Dane, Ontario iron ore pool and sporting a new paint job.  $32.95 each.

This New York Central paint scheme represents an early delivery (February of 1965) from Pullman Standard. This group sports extra heavy NYC reporting marks that seem to be unique to this batch. Perhaps the original stencil specs went missing and Pullman Standard made replacements based on the heavier lettering used in the logo. These cars had black ends, a practice discontinued on later deliveries. The paint scheme will be available in 4 road numbers.
