– Conrail CR “932B Repaint 1976+ Large Logo” transports us back to the early days of Conrail.  This group of cars models former NYC Lot 932B cars that were repainted by the CR’s Hollidaysburg Car Shops.  These prototype cars feature the 1963-era body – so that means inset 41’ 3” truck centers and a shorter sill.  But it is 1976, so the running boards are gone and the brake appliance and ladders have been lowered.  We have carefully duplicated all these features on the model.  If you look closely, you will see the “torched off” running board bracket remnants on the roof and the former bolt/strap remnants of the ladders on the sides and ends.  The sides of the body have the CR-specific bolster area reinforcements, too!  Yes, we tool these specific body and roof versions to get it right.  Other features on the model include accurate “cut-down” low ladders, a Universal power brake/brake wheel, end crossover grab irons and Apex crossover end walkways.  The double-plug doors have “Auxiliary Top Crank” arms to match the era.  Underneath, you can identify that beautiful Keystone Center-Of-Car Cushioning underframe with the centered return unit and offset return spring.  The underside crossbearer connectors are taller and hang lower on this version of the underframe, a distinctive look that you can easily see from the side of the car.  And you just knew this was coming:  The model has Tangent’s All-New 100-Ton Barber S-2 Plain Bearing trucks with “removed” journal box lids.  You can actually see the rebuilt Timken bearing caps in there– just like the prototype!  These are cool examples of 1970s repaints.
