some news regarding BLW's 'blue goose'

Some progress (horns, ladders, rear coupler and front trim)

Back to 'Borden's butterdish cars'

The catwalks and the working buffers have been mounted. The cars received their basic paint - after application of the decals, the cars will receive a semi-gloss or matte finish.
The silver car with the brake wheel attached to the hood will be lettered as 'Borden's milk tank car'; the white one will be lettered for 'The Borden company chemical division'.
Of course the walkway has anti-slip pattern for safety reasons....
I'm not quite sure about painting the handrails in black - there are some photos with black handrails and a silver car (even the fins are black on their edges)- however it is from the initial delivery with top-fins (1940).
