Western Pacific 17653 a long way from home

One of my favorite layout photos - Western Pacific 17653 is dusty and a long way from home as it trails behind a pair of Cape Ann F7A units coming downgrade from Cascade.

This is a Tyco boxcar which has been repainted, decaled, and lightly weathered. The closed stirrup steps have been "painted open" with flat black paint to create the illusion they are open. The door hardware is touched up with a silver Sharpie pen.

I especially like this photo for the strong light and sharp shadows.
