You know CIND really did have some box cars right?  Had 5 double door RBLs, if I recall correctly car numbers where CIND 50000-50004 maybe?  Heck, i think I have a copy of the lease I signed on them somewhere.  Anyway, where solid bark blue with white lettering.  No CENTRAL "logo" though.  Cars where used on case good service out of Seagrams.

Only car to ever carry the CENTRAL "logo" was CIND 10000 - an ACF smooth side center flow covered hopper - NW gray (ex NW car) with black lettering and logo.

Nice looking models by the way.

BEAUTIFUL WORK!!!  Just for fun I did a Central box car with the name too.  I did it on a 50' MDC single door box car.

Nice job cutting in the nose bell on the Great Miami unit.  Those little details really set the model apart!

Very nice work.  What color did you use for the CERA beige (or did you mix your own)?
Cheers, Al

I just used Polly Scale Mud straight from the bottle.

The real paint is Ford Motor Company tan, straight off the shelf at NAPA.  It was one of the tan paints offered on trucks in the 80's.   

Let's turns this into a trivia question.  Besides the 6 locomotives (1201-1202, 1750-1753) Central had one other piece of equipment painted in the scheme - name it.

I could swear there was a covered hopper painted like that...  I recall seeing it (whatever it was lol) a couple times on trains thru Greenburg back in the days of the original CIND.  Might have seen it at Lowes back then.
I know it was not a caboose... only saw it one time, on a very long (for that line at the time) grain train heading west and I believe it was red ex-NW.

Nope, not a covered hopper.  The solid gray grain covered hopper with CENTRAL on the sides was a regular at Lowes and Greensburg Milling in the 1990s however.

wait... was it a gondola??  man my memory SUCKS but I DO recall seeing SOME kind of freight car with that multitone Central scheme, and I saw it more than once.  Could have  sworn it was covered hopper but obviously CANNOT TRUST BRAIN ANYMORE lol.  I am SURE it was not a box car - so it was probably a box car ::)
Oh and yes it WAS just a plain Central lettered CH I saw at Lowes.

Yep, CIND 2254 nailed it.  Had a Chevy Blazer painted up that we used as a crew wagon, utility man vehicle, etc.    No frieght cars ever in that scheme....at least in 1:1 scale.

I think there was a flat car stored in the sidings just west of Washington Street in Kokomo.  It sat there for several years with a pile of scrap/trash on it.  If I remember correctly it had CERA and a number on it.
