INTX ex-MILW 2007+ is an example of patched paint jobs for the modern era. These ex-Milwaukee Road cars were acquired by Interstate Commodities Inc. as part of their varied railcar lease fleet. The original MILW reporting marks and data have been patched and are ready for some weathering. Look closely at the details: Car #45131 features a free-standing MILW-applied ACI label, blue patch paint, reporting mark remnants of the previous IMRL lease (different on each side!) and vertical conspicuity stripes. Car #45145 has a different reporting mark patch variation, the dash-outline MILW applied COTS, vertical conspicuity stripes and the ghosted remnants of the original ACI label. Available in two specific and accurate numbers.
