ACFX PressureAid
Author: Jimmies

Sometime last year, I was given this Atlas model of a PressureAid covered hopper by my friend Luc.  It finally made it out of the box and onto the workbench for some weathering, and now it's out and earning it's keep on the railroad.

 Perfect amount of noticible fading in addition to the rusting effect. Very nice!

These are often used with light density powdery material like flour and talc. What industry are you assigning it too?

That car looks mighty fine. Just the kind of weathering I prefer.

This car is most likely to be routed from GTW over to the JSSX, to be spotted into their transload spur.  From there the lading will be transferred to an over-the-road carrier.  At that point, well, I guess you'd have to talk to the trucking company to find where the load is going.
