BNSF “Buffer Car” #5 (Car #808051) is Tangent’s fifth BNSF Buffer car in the series. This car mimics a former BNSF revenue service Airslide car patched for present-day oil train buffer car service. An incredible amount of small data is printed on this car, including roof anti-skid patches, faded BNSF logos, truck lettering and of course, conspicuity stripes. This car scheme is available in one number, to match the exact prototype. Do not miss out on this car!
