Steve Neubaum's Album: Lionel 2625 Bakelite Heavyweight Repaint

I was given this car which was in very shoddy condition, someone repainted it, looks like they used house paint and a broom! I've been wanting a "Project' car like this one to repaint into silver with shadowlining to match my Lionel aluminum cars. Real railroads would sometimes modernize and repaint old heavyweights and to better match the fluted stainless steel streamliners they would paint on simulated corrugations.

Repainted with Shadowlining
I hand wrote the Pullman lettering. I plan to use a seperate letterboard there so it will be covered anyway, and this was just so I could see how a completed side would look. Other side has no lettering.
