Here is an outstanding model done by Mr. Ed Barry. Ed started with the Walther's LPG car and modified it heavily to represent the Trinity built car. The Walther's saddles were cut away so that new ones could be scratchbuilt; a Detail Associates AB brake detail set supplied some parts for the underbody detailing. Plano's kit #303 was modified to match the unique walkways of the prototype. Kadee 100 Ton roller bearing trucks were added, and decals were pieced together from a Herald King CGTX set, and various Islington Station sets. Weathering was applied to finished the model. Below is a prototype photo of how the car looked in 1997.
