GACX “GATX 1992 Blue Repaint” marks the return of the common 1990s light blue lease scheme in an all-new version to the Tangent lineup. Bold GATX AIRSLIDE lettering dominates this scheme, and features a silver running board and roof hatches, just like the prototype. This series was originally built by GATC in 1973 and our model includes appropriate production details for that era including low mounted brake appliances, wide side posts, and wide running boards. Incredibly popular 1990s railroading — available in 2 numbers.
