Illinois Central Evans 53' Double Plug Door Boxcar


In 1971 and 1972, the Illinois Central took delivery of Evans Double Plug Door Boxcars. These 80 insulated cars saw system-wide service on the IC and later on the ICG. Typically used in paper and food service, all of the cars received the Orange "Split Rail" image. The cars were painted orange with black and white lettering and were numbered in the 150000-150079 series.

These cars were among the last new cars delivered to the IC, as the merger with the GM&O would occur in August of 1972. This decal set includes all of the data you need to decal one car. It is designed to fit the Atlas or Details West (now Athearn) 53' Double Plug Door boxcars.

You can also find a photo on the George Elwood Fallen Flags Website of IC 150046

A decal diagram is included (shown below). This set is printed in black, white and yellow.

Cost: $6.00 per set.
