Christmas Train: Boxcar


This car “personalizes” the train by utilizing digital photographs of a display of Christmas inflatables downsized to fit the HO model. The photos were printed by a high-quality Canon printer on photographic-quality paper and attached to the car with 3M double-sided adhesive tape. The car is an Atlas brand 50 foot Precision Design Smoothside Boxcar (prototype manufacturer ACF) in “undecorated” style (that is, not carrying the markings of any railroad).  These undecorated cars can be made to represent any railroad by the addition of appropriate decals or left unmarked as in this case.
