Chessie System (B&O) “Original 7-1973” replicates the 200 car B&O order of PS4750s produced in July 1973. We appreciate how patient the Chessie modelers have been with us over the years, and now we are pleased to offer these cars in stunning Chessie Yellow and Blue paint. Specific correct car appliances are included for B&O cars, including Portloc outlet gates, plate mounted ACI labels, and Gypsum running boards. Check out those orange end pieces on the running board, just like the prototypes! And of course we include the car number on the draft gear, per B&O’s lettering standards. We have installed accurate body mounted brake gear and truck brake beams along with Timken rotating roller bearing caps on the trucks. Our new Chessie cars are available with 12 road numbers!
