Erie/AAR. Riveted. This model was made in Korea by Duck Yoo Corp, and was sold unpainted. One hundred models were produced. Ed sprayed black Testors paint, and applied HO-scale decals, then added Kadee #802 couplers. Still needing to be done to this model at the time of the photograph is a weathering of the deck and spraying of Testors Dullcote.

8,000 gallons, as built in 1942. These were made in conjunction with Pecos River Brass. The decal on this model is incorrect. The second photo is Bill Winans' model in the unpainted version. Note that Bill's photo shows a dome walkway and Bob's doesn't. This is because the walkway is only found on one side of the car, as per the prototype.
