D&RGW Brown Repaint 1976+ replicates a member of the Rio Grande fleet in a distinctive appearance. This prototype car was damaged and sent to Midwest Freight Car in Clinton, IL on the ICG. Midwest Freight Car repaired and repainted the one affected side and both ends of the car only. This D&RGW Brown Repaint scheme features a repainted “right” side of the car, with different locations for the MFC-applied Rio Grande lettering and modified small data. The other side of the car shows off the original Pullman-Standard brown paint and white lettering with various accurate paint patches applied by MFC shops personnel. Each end of the car features slightly varying MFC-applied stencil locations, based on prototype photos. The car even received new white paint and black lettering at the top of each end. What an interesting paint job! This one-of-a-kind model is equipped with accurate draft gear with the large weldments on the side along with 70-Ton Barber S-2 Roller-bearing trucks with rotating Brenco-6 caps.
