I had to apply several coats of paint so the new paint job didn't look translucent, but in the end "Sodor Mail" disappeared Smiley

I didn't use the old mail van, beacuse they got a CGI update. I just scratched off the envelopes and painted it brown. No primer.  Smiley

that's my plan, to convert a CGI style mail van. I already have 4 classic style mail vans and i don't want to mess them up. all 4 together make up a nice train and i can always leave a mail van at the back of the yard, or something, to make the layout a little more realistic.

To my knoweledge you have to build them. My uncle built a nice one for me a few years ago with shelves and all. So you have to buy the wood and do the carpentry.

You could always buy a coffee table with drawers and build your layout on that Tongue

Why did HiT change Rheneas' color? He looks like Duncan now, this would never suit his Grace.
