Illinois Central PS 4427 Covered Hopper
The Illinois Central took delivery of a total of 200 4427 cu.ft. covered hoppers in 1964 from Pullman Standard. Eventually renumbered into the 745200-745399 series, many were repainted into this IC Orange Split Rail Scheme. Yes, this car is *orange* not gray.
This set letters one car in the 1967-1972 Split Rail repaint scheme. COTS/Lube plates are included, and the modeler only needs to supply an ACI label to complete the car. The decal set is printed in black and white. HO Modelers will want to start with the Walther's 4427 Covered Hopper Kit. Additional details can be added like correct round hatches on the roof, and correct center running boards.
A decal diagram is included, giving paint and lettering location information. A big thanks goes out to Bill Holzer, for his assistance in getting this set done!
Cost: $5.00 per set.
