Summertime Restoration Projects

These are Howard 2" gauge tinplate cars ca 1910. The Pullman has no paint at all, and several epoxy repairs that have come apart. The clerestory is epoxied to the roof and the whole roof is repainted with a heavy black coat of poor quality. The mail car has <5% paint left and also needs a few solder repairs. Finding colors that are close to originals will be challenge too. Lot 502 from the Ward Kimball auction shows what the cars will look similar too hopefully after I'm done.
