HOX “Humble Petroleum Products” 1935+ has a silver-painted carbody with “Humble Petroleum Products” stenciling within red logos on the side of the car. The remaining tank stenciling is black, while the frame stenciling is correctly rendered in white. As always, this scheme comes directly from a prototype car that matches our model, which is displayed on our website. Humble operated gas stations under the Humble name brand, as well as Esso, Enco, and Carter. Humble was acquired by Standard Oil of New Jersey in 1959, but this car represents the period prior to that event. These cars were used to ship refined oil products for Humble, which operated gas stations located across most of the United States, with emphasis away from both coasts, making them broadly applicable to many railroads in North America. Our Humble Petroleum 1935+ replicas come with era-correct K-brakes and they are available in four different road numbers.
