Green Bay and Western (GB&W) “Original 6-59” marks the first GB&W model from Tangent Scale Models. GB&W’s yellow scheme looks great on these 9’ door cars! The right side of the car includes the large “Green Bay and Western” letters and the left side includes the distinctive “Green Bay Route” logo with red background. These cars are assigned cars, as identified with the stenciling “Assigned for paper loading at Biron, Wisconsin” and a “When empty return to Green Bay and Western R.R.” notation, typical for assigned cars of the period. These cars have a black car cement roof, but the roof includes the typical Pullman yellow overspray onto the top of it from the sides. Our GB&W models come complete with an accurate 9’ Pullman-Standard door, which is different from the earlier versions. Like the Northern Pacific cars released in April 2021, this new model rides on the new Tangent 50-Ton ASF A-3 Ride Control Roller Bearing truck – with rotating “Timken” bearing caps! Our GB&W models are offered with your choice of 6 road numbers.
