Ann Arbor (AA) “Delivery 1978” offers one of the most distinctive railroad logos to come out of the 1970s: the Ann Arbor “Ferry in the Fog.”  Built in November of 1978, this group of 20 cars represents the final Greenville 86’ boxcars built.  They were leased by the Michigan Interstate, who operated the State of Michigan-owned Ann Arbor at this time.  The cars worked out of Ford’s Saline, Michigan plant, carrying chrome and trim parts around to Ford assembly plants and parts warehouses.  These Tangent models feature an accurate late-Greenville body with 5 grab irons on the left and right sides of the car.  The car is equipped with body-mounted brake rigging hanging down from the underframe and 100-Ton trucks with rotating Timken roller bearing caps, just like the prototype.  The Freightmaster End-Of-Car Cushioning details really pop, since Ann Arbor painted the face of the striker orange, a detail we were very diligent to duplicate.  The Ann Arbor Railroad System lettering is carefully replicated on this model, from the big Ann Arbor Ferry Boat down to the small black and white assignment stencils.
