Conrail (CR) “Delivery 1978” shows off the timeless CR boxcar freight scheme, and the car class that served the longest! While Conrail did absorb numerous predecessor series of 86’ Auto Parts Boxcars from Greenville, Thrall, Pullman and SRS, there was only ONE group of cars ordered and delivered new to Conrail.  This 1978 Greenville order is significant, numbering 312 cars.  The Tangent replica duplicates all of the delivery lettering exactly as applied by Greenville, from the big Conrail logo down to the 2” data and stencil marks.  No generic CR data or fonts here – this is hand-drawn from exact photos.  The CR cars feature accurate body-mounted brake gear with all those visible rods and assemblies hanging below the car side just like they should.  Did you notice the “third arm” mechanisms at the top of each door?  We did, too – they are accurate and appropriate for this car, as-built.  SKUs -01 through -03 feature April 1978 data, and SKUs -04 through -12 feature May 1978 data.  This is a big series of cars and they are ready to haul auto parts on your layout.
