Bowser Covered Hoppers
Bowser Covered Hoppers...
Below are my photos of Bowser covered hoppers.
Bowser does offer this little two bay covered
hopper in a Chessie paint scheme, but their
early offerings were too yellow, not golden enough. The latest runs
are better, but still need weathering to make them blend
well with other properly painted cars.
I therefore repainted my
early run car (5135) and renumbered the later
run car (5126).
HC-35 Class (WM 5101-5200):
Chessie WM 5126 (Purchased decorated as WM 5500 series hopper,
renumbered to this class)
Chessie WM 5135 (Purchased decorated as WM 5123, reworked and
painted to this paint job)
