IBT boxcar in 2021
Author: ghemr

I lucked out when a few of these rare Exactrail cars appeared on Ebay recently! Indeed, I snapped one up as I like the simple paint scheme. Naturally though I had to add a bit more color to make it look more contemporary.......

Nice work.  A light touch with weathering is a great idea.

Nice job fading down the green.  I wonder what you used.

​Yes, I was wondering how you did that, too, without affecting the numbering and other markings on the car!

Nice job, it looks like a working boxcar and not something waiting for the cutting tourch. Too many people overweather their equipment.

Well, I used two different products that "Jimmies" had suggested to me in the past. First I tried Modelflex Concrete Gray. Because I'm still intimidated (or ignorant?) of thinning and airbrushing acrylic paint I somewhat screwed up the car! To fix my mistake I then applied Rapido Proto Paint Flat Haze which helped alot!

Thanks for the comments----perhaps some day I'll get it right............. Ghemr

Lovely work. Those IBT boxcars are looking pretty ratty these days, and it seems like you've gotten it right. Also enjoy seeing it with those other cars -- that DJJ bathtub gon is something you might indeed see next to an IBT boxcar when out railfanning, and the two look great together.

The IBT box looks fantastic, just like the real deal. Here's a couple I've captured within the past several years in Southern California...


IBT 19107 - La Mirada, CA 4/30/16
IBT 19305 - La Mirada, CA 7/5/11
