Illinois Central 40' / 50' Boxcar 1967+
The IC adopted the Orange Split Rail Scheme in 1967. Over the next 5 years, many of the 40' and 50' boxcar classes would receive the new paint while being shopped at the Centralia, IL and McComb, MS shops.
Examples of these IC cars lasted through the ICG era, up
through the mid 1980s. This decal set includes all of the data
you need to decal one 40' or 50' car. Branchline has excellent
40' and 50' kits available to provide starting points to model
This decal set has been completely reworked from the ground up in 2018 -- all new hand-drawn artwork, screen printing and accuracy are at the top of the list of changes. This scheme is too critical for anything less.
