GATX “Sunburst Great Falls MT” 1920+ is our offering in this production for the early steam-era modelers out there. This car is leased to Sunburst Refining Company for shipping of refined oil products nationwide from Great Falls, Montana. Sunburst Refining likely tapped the Kevin-Sunburst oil field in North-Central Montana, which was developed right after World War I. These cars are stenciled for Sunburst’s headquarters city of Great Falls, Montana, which was served by both Great Northern and Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Pacific (“The Milwaukee”), and feature a black-painted carbody with typical GATX graphics from the post-WWI period. Check out the fine stencilized lettering detail on this car! Our Sunburst Refining Company 1920+ replicas come with era-correct K-brakes and they are available in four different road numbers.
