I completed the road work for the junction at Mineola. If you look at my post from 7/8, you'll see Main St is missing as it crosses the tracks. Below is the finished product. I used joint compound mixed with black paint, and finished with weathering powders. I'm pretty happy with the results.

2nd video has a paint scheme that I made up that's LIRR inspired, maybe something the P72's would have worn if they had continued farther into the C3 era.

Also here's some WIP pictures.

Nice looking cars! I’ve got 4 F&C P72 cars that Ive had for over a decade..seems like I only get to work on them little by little during the holidays. (With kids and a tons of other things always popping up, they are a long term work in progress)

How did the cars come out? How are the trucks? And the couplers?
