Another load of lumber from the northwest came to Sanderson originating on the Northern Pacific.
Both cars are Exactrail. Car on left built 12-67, cushion underframe, metal rail along end of deck boards, car on right built 10-65, no cushion underframe, end of deck boards exposed.
I cut down through the ends of the American Model Builders wood deck boards with a razor saw on the 10-65 car so the boards appear to be individual. I weathered both cars just with powder since I have had problems with wood warping when I used a weathering wash.
I need to add ACI plates, at least to the newer car since ACI plates came out in 1967, so it was probably delivered with one.
