– Detroit, Toledo & Ironton DTI “Green Repaint 1978+” provides the modelers with a great example of Greenville 60’ Double Plug-Door cars in a refurbished, repainted version.  In 1978, Detroit, Toledo & Ironton refurbished most of the 1966-built cars at the railroad’s Jackson OH Shops.  The work concluded with a spectacular repaint into the dark green scheme!  The model features the correct carbody details for January/February of 1966, which represents the original build dates for these cars.  These cars were the first cars Greenville produced with the wider 46’ 3” truck centers.  DT&I retained the high ladders on the B end of the car since they did not cut down the brake appliances.  DT&I did remove the running board, and of course our model picks up on all of these small details, even on rebuild paint schemes, which is something Tangent has tooled all of the necessary parts for.  If you look at the doors, you will see the double pair of auxiliary crank arms added to the prototype cars.  The Tangent model carefully duplicates these modern features.  The DT&I lettering is looking good on that green carbody and includes the accurate Return-To-Detroit routing.  Underneath, the model has an accurate Keystone Center-Of-Car cushioning (COCC) underframe with truck mounted brake hardware.  Yes, that means no brake cylinder part – the underframe brake piping routes to small brake cylinders on the brake beams of the trucks.  Also, check out that beautiful Stanray diagonal panel roof – DT&I painted it green.  On the ends, the model is equipped with an accurate Ajax power brake, Modern brake wheel and Apex brake step.  This model is equipped with 100-Ton Barber S-2 trucks with rotating Timken caps.  These models are ready for auto parts service on your railroad!
