National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) GATC 2600 Airslide Covered Hoppers 1955+

This decal set will help you letter the various small groups of Nabisco GATC 2600 cu.ft. Airslide Covered Hoppers. In HO, models from Athearn, Walthers, Eastern Car Works or Con Cor can be used. The National Biscuit Company leased at least a few small groups starting in 1955. I am always looking for more photo evidence of these cars, but I have been able to verify an early scheme in 1955 on the "Early" body style, and a placarded scheme in use by ther mid-60s on "Early" and "Intermediate" body style cars. All of the cars have gray bodies and ends, and have black bays/centersills between the bolsters.

GACX 42386 and others, Early Body Style 1955+
GACX 42505-42554, Early body style GACX mixed series with some reassigned to Nabisco 1964-1965.
GACX 45991-45992, Intermediate body style 1965+

Enough lettering is supplied to letter up to 3 different cars. Home points for Nabisco cars included Marseilles, IL (RI), Beacon, NY (NYC), Oxnard, CA (SP), Carthage, MO (SLSF), Chicago, IL (BRC), Ft. Worth, TX (FWD), Peoria, IL and Minneapolis, MN. Do you have additional photos of Nabisco Airslides you can share?
