Boston & Maine “1980 Paintout” replicates GACX leased cars that were acquired by the Boston & Maine in 1980. While most of the data is intact, the B&M patched over the GACX reporting marks and numbers and replaced them with their own. Another example of 1977-built cars, these have the appropriate phase details including low mounted brake appliances, wide side posts, and wide Morton running boards. This scheme is available in 3 accurate numbers, and *each one* features unique gray patch stencils per prototype photos for 3 precise replicas!
3 prototype reference photos are in the grid of model/prototype photos below.
