Burlington Northern (BN) Ph 3 Black Delivery 1976+ PS4000 is a different “Phase 3” carbody version of the classic BN paint scheme as applied by Pullman-Standard, compared to our previous “Phase 1” release.  The classic Burlington Northern billboard scheme was applied with white stencil lettering on a black car, with white rectangles on the end and slope sheets to designate the rotary end.  Some of the car fleet was repainted in the 1980s with full white ends and we will offer those down the road, but these samples from BN’s massive fleet of almost 1,200 cars are the statistically relevant scheme for BN’s largest coal hopper fleet.  These Phase 3 models have the distinctive Pullman “trapezoid” indentations on the side panels, and the “short B end, short A end” body configuration.  We offer this scheme in 24 road numbers so you can model a unit train!  This 1976+ scheme lasted into the BNSF era so it is relevant for all modelers.
