Christopher Robinson displays Algoma Central boxcars at Winipeg Model Railroad Club's January meeting

   WMRC member Christopher Robinson presented six Algoma Central Railway 40 foot outside braced boxcars at the club's monthly model display at their January meeting. These were Accurail boxcar kits, which he assembled, applied dry transfer decals, and installed Kadee Couplers.

    This was his first attempt at weathering anything, and he did a terrific job! No two boxcars were weathered identically. The level of weathering suggests that the cars came out of the paint shop recently. He used a thin wash of grey paint to weather the cars. Some cars received more than one coat. 

     The monthly model display is open to all WMRC members. A cash prize is given every month, drawn at random. Show us what you've got! We always love to see what our members have been doing!
