Remarks & Notes 
Your basic un-decorated geep in 1:1 scale. The Rock Island 4506 sees the light of day for cleaning. Here the UP 1848 is being used as the air compressor to blow away remnants of the needle chipping that removed the C&NW paint. If you look closely you can see some of the Route Rock lettering on the body, and a small amount of light blue in the window and on the cab.
