But, Marquette, a little bit earlier you've posted some more photos:
tt-nut-ps2-2-bay-covered-hopper-t831-60.html#p7777
- and there were some railroads in that post you did not mention here:
Ann Arbor
Detroit & Mackinac
Detroit Toledo & Ironton
Grand Trunk Western
Lake Superior & Ishpeming
Marquette Rail

- what about 2-bay hoppers on that railroads?..

Well, look at those very closely, comparing them to the other ones - those aren't PS2s. Some are taller (which is very noticeable - the bit above the taper is noticeably longer), or have other differences - for another example, count the ribs on the side of the ones you listed, and then count the ribs on the side of the PS2s - note that on the PS2s - like on the model - the centre panel is much wider than the others!

The ones you list, as I said, aren't PS2s - but some are quite close and the model can be easily modified to match (those with diferent hatch covers or different rib arrangment); others are similar but hard to modify - e.g. the taller ones. However, some of the taller ones have the big panel in the centre, and for those inclined to overlook the difference in height, the PS2 model can do well as a stand-in.

Speaking of covered hoppers that are not PS-2's, in the middle of Marquette's post with all of the photos is a picture of Milwaukee Road #99867. Judging from the hoppers and car ends, isn't this an Airslide rather than a PS-2? I'm not sure how I missed this thread when it was first posted...

i think the southern one is a PS2, but it has been raised a bit.

Now, at last I've got my first American hopper! :) (Thank you Marquette!)

I think it is nice; I put it on the Gold Coast's trucks:

Now, I want to paint my hopper as SOO Line (because I have DSS&A locomotive, I'll model SOO)
So, I need some Soo Line decals for cars and locomotives.

It seems to me that they are the same as this:
http://www.sooline.org/models/hopper_ce ... ement.html
(Tell me if I am wrong)

Can anybody give me any information about Soo Line lettering/painting scheme for these hoppers? (Black letters on the white/light grey hopper)? Unfortunately I do not know enough about American
railroads lettering schemas, so I do not know what should I write on the wagon, besides the big "SOO LINE" title...

Or maybe anybody of you have a decal for these hoppers in computer format (Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or any else) ?
I have a special paper for decals production by usual inkjet printer, but I can print only black (or color) letters and heralds, not white.
