CR “1988 G43 Coil Svc. w/Rack – Coils NOT included” in the now-classic Conrail red paint. This series represents the former PRR-painted G43 series. Conrail retained the placards that were present on these original PRR-painted cars from 22 years before. The Conrail reporting marks, road number, Conrail can opener logo, and COTS panel are all on these three placards. The top chord of the car has a “COIL STEEL LOADING ONLY” stencil to remind customers and railroad officers that the car is equipped with coil racks. Our model has coil racks too, and we sell the steel coils for this car separately. We recommend a load of four of them if you want to replicate most prototype loading patterns – for the size of coil we created. Yes, we did the math. These Conrail cars are offered in 6 all-new road numbers for September 2016, and feature details appropriate for the 1966-built car.
