Below are photos of my cars that no longer make the
standard and have been removed from service.
Bachmann Chessie B&O 11147 (This
kit comes with an inaccurate Chessie paint job. Structurally,
is close to the B-053 insulated boxcar, but requires
That is what I did to mine.)
Bev-Bel/Athearn Chessie C&O 19275 (This
kit comes custom painted in a fictitious all yellow scheme from
Bev-Bel. They also offer a bogus all brown scheme.
Structurally, the car is close to some C&O MofW boxcars. I
repinted mine into such a scheme. As for the 19XXX road
the Front Range car is much more accurate for that class.)
Con-Cor Chessie C&O 157002, 162012, 172025 (This
kit is not accurate for any class of Chessie hopper. It can
be easily salvaged and you should not buy these kits.)
