This photo shows the coach shell after the decals and flat finish have been applied.
I did a lot of research to find what the D&H coaches looked like in the older Pullman green scheme. As you might imagine, there are loads of shots in the aluminum, blue and yellow paint and even some in the two-tone scheme, but apparently none in the Pullman green paint. However, I was able to find a diagram showing a coach the way I wanted to finish this one.
As Tai T’ung (thirteenth century Chinese philosopher) said “Were I to await perfection, my book would not be finished, so I have made shift to collect the fruits of my labor as I find them”
So I did the best I could with what I had.
Next step: clean up the trucks, add end gates, diaphragms and marker lights.
D&H #223 will soon be ready for service.
