Erie Lackawanna (EL) “Original 1965” represents the first of four Erie Lackawanna orders for Greenville 86’ Double-Door box cars. Delivered in 1965, this group of 100 cars featured Center-of-Car Cushioning with truck mounted brakes. This car includes the large spelled out Erie Lackawanna on the left side of the car, and a large gold “Cushioned Car” and large white Erie Lackawanna diamond logo at the right side of the car. We sweat the little details too – our model is equipped with an accurate Ajax hand brake, Apex crossover platforms and 70T trucks with 33” wheels and rotating Timken roller bearing caps. Remember those truck mounted brakes mentioned earlier? Yes, our trucks have the correct truck mounted brake beam to match that important detail. Finally, this Erie Lackawanna offering was part of the Ford’s Chicago Stamping Pool, resulting in an accurate Chicago Heights, Illinois return route stencil. Our EL masterpieces are available in six different numbers. EL Fans rejoice!
