GATX “White Lease 1980+” in the plain “white lease 1980+” scheme which includes a large black stripe in the middle of the car, as well as tiny “Dupont de Nemours” lettering for hydrochloric acid loading. The black stripe was applied by GATX leasing in an “economy” mode where it is only painted onto the top two-thirds of the tank. These cars were repainted in 1980, which of course is modeled after an exact prototype photo. These cars are documented to have lasted into the 1990s, and represents a general lease car broadly applicable across North America. Check out the ACI placard in this car, which sits on its own placard off the walkway! Very cool, and very 1980s. It is available in two road numbers.
