CB&Q “Original 1-1966” replicates the Q’s third and largest order of 4180 Airslides. This group of 50 cars was painted in beautiful CB&Q gray with a separate logo panel bolted to the ribs for touch of class. This group has the appropriate phase details for a 1966 built car, including high mounted brake appliances and Apex running boards. The new Tangent 100-Ton Barber S-2 roller bearing trucks feature correct truck-mounted brake beams and Timken rotating caps, too. This scheme is available in 4 accurate numbers!
