has anyone bought a freight car, loco or whatever with a made up railroad name on it?
Like say a long gone model railroad
Such as the Gorre & Daphited
Or like one from a model train group?

Your own railroads count too

if answers are yes Let's SEE them!

I have none of them. I like original pieces by their makers. I would like to get a Krispy Kreme doughnut car but all that’s available are custom-made ones that I don’t want. A company named Colorsbright Made about 500 of them

Let's see, since the St Louis - San Francisco, "Frisco", actually ran from Dallas to Pensacola, so that counts as a made up name, right?
;)
Given that no manufacturers have seen fit to do a production run with any of my own 3 freelance road names, I'm stuck with sticking on the decals one Microscale letter at a time ...

Did download a couple cars for Trainz Railroad Simulator lettered for Allen McClelland's Virginian and Ohio.

Around 2009 Bachmann in their G scale "Big Hauler" line had a set with their own freelance roadname "Glenbrook Valley" on a 4-6-0 with a reefer and a caboose. I bought a set with some disability settlement money.
Locomotive is in a quite handsome 1870s-1880s livery,
here, see these for reference about the real paint styles, http://www.pacificng.com/template.php?page=/ref/locobuilders/blw/style/baldwinstyles3.htm

EDIT: here, this is the specific page I meant, http://www.pacificng.com/template.php?page=/ref/locobuilders/blw/style/stylediag/index.htm

This is someone else's photo, turns out I don't have an overall photo of mine available.
[url=https://flic.kr/p/961YQc] [/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/961YQc]Bachmann Big Hauler #x27;Glenbrook Valley#x27; loco[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/trainsandstuff/]Glen Fairweather[/url], on Flickr

All I have of mine are photos used to illustrate adding details, such as literal "dim bulb" factory headlight replaced with a 5mm LED; coal burning stack instead of original woodburner; holders for class flags, white for extra here. Just a few days ago I finally got brackets for class light lanterns added to sides of smokebox, they are not in this image from several years ago.


And ...

... this one of Grumman kitty having rolled it over, a few years ago.
("Train? What train? There's a train? I know nothing of any train wreck")
(and the dear feline fellow is so innocently asleep on the desk here at this moment)

Royal Blue workhorses on the Blaxland Ridge, Cody the F-7A (Athearn) and Jonathan the C-424 (Atlas/Kato)
These projects took the course of over a year due to slowly slowly acquiring the models themselves and the detail and replacement parts needed to get them running. I airbrushed them myself.

Cody






Jonathan




And also the switchers on the line: Hunter the booster tank, and Summer the Plymouth ML-8. Summer Isn't all that customized, just some white trim and decals.





There's still a Mantua/Tyco Shifter which I haven't finished yet because I don't have a smokebox front for it yet. So that's soon to come, and that is the last of the Blaxland Painted locos.

On my layout are three made-up roadnames. My main railroad is the Tabor and Waldo. The name is a tongue in cheek defiance of the present trend to be more specific about the era and location of your layout. Mt. Tabor is the traditionally accepted location of that scene in the Bible where Jesus appears transfigured with Moses and Elijah, both of whom should have been dead about then. This is a magnificent anachronism, only made possible by a peculiarity of eternity. So much for specific era. As for specific location, where is Waldo, anyhow? Seems a subject for multiple books.


I'm not really an enthusiast for lettering, so my models are mostly limited to reporting marks like "TW".


An occasional piece of passenger equipment merits the full road name, as seen on the trailer to the doodlebug.

A coal hauling branch line interchanges with the TW at Batey Hollow. This is the Diggin Hill and Batey Hollow, named for a couple of roads in northwest Illinois (except that Batey is a misspelling of Beaty Hollow Rd.).
The railroad is really just a hidden staging track and the interchange track at Batey Hollow.

A couple of Heislers carry the DHBH reporting marks. Heislers were popular in mining and quarrying because their enclosed gear boxes protected the gears from rocks.


The caboose bears the full road name and carries a small amount of passenger, baggage and express traffic.

The Fish Hook and Mussentuchit runs a transfer freight from its yard at Mussentuchit to the classification yard on the TW. Fish Hook is at the end of the line. Mussentuchit, though not proposed to be in Utah is named after a grouping of land forms in central Utah (Mussentuchit Wash, Mussentuchit Flat, Mussentuchit Dune). On the layout, this railroad is implied by a hidden staging track. As a lowly transfer, the train is pulled by an 0-4-0 switcher and uses an old bobber as a transfer caboose.

Again, we just see reporting marks. A switcher is not an advertising billboard, after all.

The lowly bobber doesn't rate a full road name either.

"train wreck lot" - I bought a box of 38 old box cars, mostly Athearn, where KD couplers were broken or bent; axles rusted; floors pushed into bodies. Poorly stored and knocked about for the last 50 years.

Your Units are hands - down the best, Cheez. That Hudson looks like an american flyer, and those railcars are quite interesting. They remind me of the Rock Island AB6, which are the F units with the flat front. Somebody obviously took a B unit and made something similar.

I have a variety of pieces done by other modellers. Those two are obviously my best examples, sometimes I get lucky in the junk that I buy.

The Hudson is an American Flyer, someone here told me it's a 1940 production.

Maybe the same fictional history that contains the freelanced New Mexico Northern has "heritage unit" coal hoppers on the Iowa Interstate. After all, IAIS has a heritage locomotive in Rock Island paint. Why not some coal hoppers?

"The Grand Stench Lines," I had a lot of fun with my 1:1 hogger who ran the trains so I could
focus on the filming. As with 15,000 ton prototypes he has a good hand on the throttle with
these HO pieces. The F....1A (?) I got off eBay when no one else wanted it. Tuned up the
guts a little and is now a fine runner. Found a perfect missing axle lying on the club floor by
pure chance. The coaches were relettered for the Grand Stench Lines with some custom
decals. The center coach, "The Royal Arms" just seemed like a perfect fit. The CNJ unit...uh
Alco ??? something or rather?....is an AHM unit I found the CNJ shell for in pile. Not having
a caboose I slathered up a spare hooptie and slapped on some CNJ decals with no particular
regard to type or number, just a hack with a CNJ denominator. With my lack of knowledge,
coming up with fantasy or semi prototype pieces is fairly easy.

I like the colors on the GSL train Chops! Who would name their RR "Stench?" Seems a bit off - putting. Railroads deserve loving names!

Don't know what the original artist had in mind. Not too, too
different than say, "Gorre & Dafeited" (Gory and Defeated)
and such.

True, but the Gorre and Daphetid is a cool sounding name though

Maybe the same fictional history that contains the freelanced New Mexico Northern has "heritage unit" coal hoppers on the Iowa Interstate. After all, IAIS has a heritage locomotive in Rock Island paint. Why not some coal hoppers?

true but the new owner of the Mississippi Delta Railroad has bought the CRI&P name & has been painting its locos as The Rock

I had to look. Busss is 100% right. That is indeed a MDRR heritage scheme. I didn't even
know this shortline existed.
