Grand Trunk Western GTW “Original 1978” shows off the dark blue 1978 Delivery scheme for the Grand Trunk Western. This paint job is full of little details like accurate GATC stencils, a raised-plate ACI label and even the correct Milwaukee Road return-route stencils to Redwing, Minnesota. Of course, the model has the appropriate phase details for a 1978-built 4180 Airslide, including the wide side posts and low brake appliances. This scheme is available in three numbers!
