Iowa Interstate – IAIS “RI Restencil 1987+” is a nod to the IAIS modelers out there, as well as connecting roads that saw IAIS grain and fertilizer service hoppers. This ex-RI car is a rolling time-capsule of RI lettering details. While the IAIS has applied some basic patches and reweigh CAPY data, the large ROCK ISLAND lettering is still intact which is appropriate considering IAIS operates former RI territory! The model features replacement fiberglass roof hatches and new Morton crossover platforms. This car is available in 1 accurate number.
