Undecorated Weathered 4-Bay Centerflow Hopper
Manufactured By: Weaver
Model Number: U1700LD
Road Name: GALX
Notes: I ordered this hopper in order to try out Weaver's "weatherize it" option. On request, Weaver will custom weather any car or engine they sell. What's interesting is that the cars are hand weathered by the staff at Weaver. Therefore, no 2 cars are weathered in exactly the same way. Pretty cool, huh? I have to say that I'm pleased with the results and I will most likely order the "weatherize it" option again. In case you're wondering, the "weatherize it" option adds $15 on to the price of whatever piece you're buying. I've since modified the weathering job on this car. I painted the brake wheel black and I also added the GALX (Georgia Power) markings and the 196252 car number. This car was added to my set in March of 2007
