Another recent arrival to Y&MV management is a sampling of Scalecoat II paint. This shipment included five colors:
- S2401 Erie Lackawana Gray (for primer)
- S2013 Boxcar Red
- S2087 Boxcar Red #2
- S2088 Boxcar Red #3
- S2012 Tuscan Red
The red colors (really brown) will be the subject of paint shop testing to determine the final formula for Y&MV freight car paint.
Y&MV management has provided Stephens Rail Car lettering specifications in a text format. The above image is the first visual mock-up which has come back from Stephens Rail Car. This is a very impressive step in the right direction!
There will be continued communication between the two companies as the details are fine-tuned. Hank Stephens of Stephens Rail Car is excellent to work with. The decals once finalized will be printed by Highball Graphics Decals.
