Chicago & North Western (C&NW) Ph 2 Clinton Repaint 8-1985 PS4000 represents the 1980s CNW program repaint cars into Clinton green with yellow ends, which lasted well into the 2000s.  CNW’s paint and lettering specification included yellow ends to designate the rotary end of the coal hopper.  The scheme includes the classic “ball and bar” scheme with a red ball and black bar.  Interestingly, this specific series of CNW cars did not have the distinctive trapezoids on the car sides but instead had flat panels, which forced us to tool a different body shell specifically for this CNW order in order to be correct!  These cars were similar to the BN cars because they had the “short B end, long A end” body configuration with offset truck bolster spacing, although they had ladders on the left side of the car instead of grab irons.  CNW ordered two groups of these Pullman 4000 cubic foot cars of equal numbers.  This Tangent release focuses on the common green repaints that were in coal service, as well as coke, aggregate, and tie services as well later in life.  Don’t miss out on these classic cars from 1985!  We offer this scheme in 24 road numbers so you can model a unit train!  And don’t forget, you can mix these hoppers with our black and white CNW cars from 1975, in stock at Tangent and at stores!
