DC/DCC Lighting Features: Interior Lights and Pyle marker lamps
Chessie System (B&O) “1973+ Repaint” gives us one of the most recognizable paint schemes of all time. Starting in 1973, the B&O’s DuBois, Pennsylvania, Shops applied the railroad’s new Chessie System graphics and yellow & blue paint to the I-18 fleet. Orange striping and a silver roof added a sharp finish for the scheme. DuBois paint details included the blue smoke jack and orange paint under the silver roof eaves. Note the “high” application of the Chessie cat logo — so there would be enough room underneath it for the ACI label. This 1973 paint scheme includes era appropriate details like Pyle lanterns and the standard toilet dump pipe. Check out the four individual red reflectors on the end railings! Lighting features include prototypically dim interior lights as well as lit Pyle lanterns. We are offering this scheme in two new numbers different from our January 2020 release.
