      Not to change the subject, I would like to find a color formula for the wood body cars. I am only using Scalecoat II so anyone if you would please chime in with a formula. Would you call the color magenta? If so I guess you would start off with red, followed by some white and last maybe a little blue. Anyone have any other ideas.

      It would appear that the Chateau Martin cars were all second hand obtained when the milk companies stopped using the tank cars.  Photos on Jim Lancaster's site indicate most were either ex-MDT or GPEX cars. Both of these cars have been previously well done on O Scale. Lionel's car is the MDT body. Details can be seen in plans in Bob Mohowski's Book covering O&W milk operations. The GPEX 40' body was done by Rails Unlimited in a built up resin body. Plans for that car exist in the March 1986 issue of RMC.
