On my workbench – one project complete

A while back I reported on me repainting Microtrains and Atlas coaches into Lehigh Valley colours.


These coaches are not exactly right for LV heavyweights, but they’ll do the job.  And I have finished the repaints – plus four out-of-the-box Rapido Osgood-Bradley coaches.  The reds still don’t quite match (and I think the Rapido red is too light), but they are probably no different as seen on the prototype with different pots of paint and weathering.  I now have a rake or two of coaches for my PA’s – next job, fit Microtrains couplings to the PA’s (all five of them).  Now that job has been hanging around for at least 15 years….
