Ice Ice Baby...

One of my winter / spring projects is to model an ice breaker car similar to those used by the New York Central back in the day. It's nothing more than a 2 bay hopper with a raised truss made of "I" beams designed to knock the icicles off of tunnel mouths and ceilings, thus protecting the locomotives and cars from damage.

These cars have been around in O gauge and HO for a while, but I've never seen one in S. It seemed like a simple modeling project that matched my simple skill set. 

I finally found a color picture that clears up what color the car is supposed to loo; like on the website of the canada southern website.

Now to finish the project!
