Chicago and North Western (C&NW) “Original 12-56” offers another classic box car scheme, this time the C&NW “brown” car with black ends. This beautiful car includes the sharp, large C&NW logo in black and white on the upper right carbody side. The left side of the car includes the CNW reporting marks with lines above and below them as found on these Pullman-Standard painted cars. Unlike the Southern cars above, these boxcars were built at Pullman-Standard’s Michigan City, IN plant and of course our car covers that correctly with the stenciling next to the door. These cars include the second version of the Superior 9’ door, with a different horizontal support pattern than the Southern car noted above. These cars have a black car cement roof, but the roof includes the typical Pullman carbody color overspray onto the top of it from the sides. This new model rides on an all-new truck for Tangent Scale Models, the 50-Ton ASF A-3 plain bearing truck. Our C&NW models are offered with your choice of 6 road numbers. And don’t forget – C&NW stenciled “Safety First” with yellow stenciling on the carbody side corners!
