An Athearn H.O Scale model of a Canadian Pacific Railroad 40 fot grain service box car.

A recent addition to my personal collection of H.O Scale model railroad rolling stock, is
this recently purchased inexpensive Athearn model of a 1970's era grain service 40 foot
box car, decorated in the Canadian Pacific Railroad's bright red 1970's era color scheme
with the CP "Multi Mark" logo, that somewhat resembles the popular 1980's Atari video
game character "Pac Man." Some railfans often refer to this popular CP Rail corporate the "Pac Man logo."
I was in a sort of a Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad mood last night, and brought a
Chicago & NorthWestern H.O Scale grain train consisting of mostly covered hoper cars,
and my Walter's trainline Series Chicago & Northwestern Railroad EMD GP 15 up front,
and a classic C & N,W bay window caboose bringing up the rear of it all as it was on the
old Chicago & NorthWestern during the 1970's and 80's.
My Canadian Pacific 40 foot grain service box car, is photographed on the tall steel trestle,
coupled next to my Athearn Union Pacific Railroad version of the same model.
