Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) “O-59A 3-1940 Capitol Dome Delivery” replicates the as-delivered capitol dome scheme found on Baltimore & Ohio’s third order of these riveted drop end gondolas. Keep in mind that B&O rostered no less than 3,800 of these gondolas, representing one of the largest single-design gondola fleets of any era. This black carbody with white stenciling scheme has the distinctive B&O “Capitol Dome” logo located on the left side of the car next to the B&O reporting marks. With the “Baltimore & Ohio” lettering on the right side of the car, this is a classic 1940s-1960s scheme not to be missed. This paint scheme was last offered ten years ago, and is available again now with 6 all-new road numbers! 3 road numbers are numbered for March 1940, while 3 road numbers are numbered for April 1940 production.
