Herby Meets the MISS
ExactRail has a history of occasionally adding monikers to our freight cars. This started in 2010 with a classic Bozo Texino on the side of Northern Pacific #75665, a PS-2CD 4427 Covered Hopper. After this car we have now added various other monikers such as Colossus of Roads, Coal Train, WaterBed Lou and Herby onto 7 freight cars in HO scale.
On our most recent release, the Evans 5277 Boxcar, we added our 8th as well as our 1st in N scale!
While creating the artwork for the Mississippian Railway scheme, on one of the reference photos that I was using of car #304044, I noticed a Herby moniker mingling with the dimensional data. After spotting this I knew I had to do this specific car number and include Herby along for the ride. It had also been a few years since the last moniker so it was time for another.
ExactRail will continue with the moniker tradition. So far we have only done some of the common ones from the 1970s and 1980s. Should we add some that are commonly seen today such as Tex Goth or Freight Bandit? Let us know or give us suggestions on other monikers that we haven't done yet that you would like to see in the comments below.
The Evans 5277 Boxcar with the Herby moniker is currently available and is only on Mississippian Railway #304044. Click on the links below to order.
