GATX “Roma Wine California” 1940+ has a silver-painted carbody with red and black (shadowing) “ROMA WINE” stenciling, which additionally includes stenciling for the cities Roma Wine loaded from: Lodi, Manteca, Fresno, and Healdsburg CA. As always, this scheme comes directly off of a prototype car that matches our model. Roma’s advertisements claimed their wine was “made in California for enjoyment throughout the world,” and these tank cars delivered wine to receivers nationwide, making them broadly applicable to almost every railroad in North America. Our ROMA WINE 1940+ replicas come with era-correct K-brakes and they are available in four road numbers.
