Prairie Shadows CN Trenton Works 5250 covered hoppers
Author: andrewcastle

Prairie Shadows Model Railway Co. is currently shipping their HO scale Trenton Works 5250 covered hoppers decorated for Canadian National. The models have a build date of 1995-1996, since I model CN in 1997 and live about an hour away from the site of the old Trenton Works plant I had to have a couple.

I painted the trucks and couplers on my cars and gave them a light weathering to represent two years in service. They are beautiful models, one car had a couple of stirrups glued on a bit crooked and the other one had no issues at all. High marks for design and decoration. The cars come with Kadee 158 couplers installed so that was a bonus.

Thanks for looking.

Andrew,
Nice job. Only top notch modelers paint couplers...And know how to paint them so they work correctly.  I think it looks great and is easy to do while weathering..
