Undecorated 4 Bay High Side Coal Hopper w/GALX custom livery
Manufactured By: Weaver
Model Number: U4900LD
Road Name: GALX
Notes: This car came undecorated from Weaver and I have since added the GALX (Georgia Power) markings to the sides. GALX coal loaded hoppers roll through here all the time. I still have some additional details to add to this car before it's complete. Though my work on this car is not 100% prototypically accurate, I'm trying to emulate the GALX car seen in this photo. I will be decorating the other 2 undecorated hoppers below in the same way. I used rub on lettering this time, but it was a major pain the butt so I will probably use decals next time. Added to my set in February 2007.
