Nebraska Consolidated Mills GATC 2600 Airslide Covered Hoppers 1954+

This decal set allows you to letter early style GATC 2600 cu.ft. Airslide Covered Hoppers for Nebraska Consolidated Mills. In HO, models from Athearn, Walthers, Eastern Car Works or Con Cor can be used. Nebraska Consolidate Mills leased one car in 1954 in the gray spelled out scheme and then came back in 1955 to lease 6 more cars. This time, they were painted in a bright Billboard lettering scheme. The cars have gray bodies and ends, and have black bays/centersills between the bolsters.

GACX 42137, Early Body Style 1954+
GACX 42396-42401, Early Body Style 1955+

Enough lettering is supplied to letter 2 different cars. I have made the billboard scheme as easy to decal as possible by including vertical pieces that are slightly stretched by design to lay across the ribs of the Athearn car. You cut out the vertical strips, and decal one at a time, overlapping them slightly at the top of the ribs.

The decal set is printed in black, white and a reddish orange. An extensive lettering diagram is included to illustrate the two different schemes.

Cost: $10.00 per set. Available in HOScale.
