Yes, we are going back to our roots of our RTR, some re-visitations of road names we have run before .... BUT.... with a twist. See the details of the twists below.
CGW- the first run was the Sill 2 design with 10' doors, this one Sill 1 design with 10-6' doors.
Conrail - we ex-EL cars in their first appearance, now this one is ex-NYC.
EL - We did as delivered cars in the first run, now we are adding the yellow CUSHION CAR and/or DF logos with return stencils which were added soon after delivery.
RI - the first run had LD loaders, these have DFB and have the narrow door rods
ROCK - we used the ROUTE ROCK logo the first time around now the THE ROCK on these narrow door rod versions.
ART (N&W and TPLX) - we ran delivery schemes before now we have gone to the 1970/71 repaints in full orange schemes and with their variations.
- Differing lettering placements for individual car numbers for repainted cars
- Car number specific handbrakes and other details
- Durable rubber air hoses and metal corner stirrups
- 70t trucks with metal wheels and axles, type matched to prototype
- Highly detailed Stanray ends
- Researched accurate lettering, from the smallest stencils to the nuisances of repainted cars
