Lehigh Valley “Gray 5-1973” represents a series of Lehigh Valley’s gray-painted, internal shop program repaints that were performed at Sayre, Pennsylvania! Lehigh Valley (and USRE) painted these Bethlehem Steel gondolas in a myriad of colors including two different greens, Cornell red, black, and gray. This is our first gray-painted offering! This model includes a light gray interior wall color matching the prototype plus the etched-metal Wine tie-downs on the top chord of the car, and ACI label. This is the first time Tangent has released this scheme from May of 1973, and it is available today in 6 road numbers!
