Thanks for the kind words Sammy.

Here is a photo taken earlier today at HVRM of Mark working on the "The Overland Route" slogan on the OTHER side of the car. Very labor intensive as I have said.

The "Overland Route" slogan has been finished. Today Mark put some "special tape" on a number of pin holes in the roof of CNW 284 (see photo). I looked at the metallic looking tape and read "Scotch Brand" on the inside of the roll, but no other description. Mark was impressed with its installation and eventually will put some "mineral (box car) red" on it. Perhaps someone can advise if they recognize the tape.
