Lehigh Valley (LV) “Delivery Gray 12-1968” shows off Lehigh Valley’s large, distinctive graphics on the side of the car.  These cars were delivered in a beautiful gray with the red LV flag across 2 panels.  Penn Central built 100 cars for Lehigh Valley in December of 1968, stenciled for 4550 cubic feet capacity and equipped with truck-mounted brakes.  On the B-end of the car, that translates to a “missing” brake cylinder and a brake linkage that extends lower than the sill, on its way to the trucks.  Speaking of the trucks, they were delivered in a red-brown color that really stands out from the LV graphics and the gray carbody.  The 100-ton Barber S-2 trucks have individual brake cylinders mounted on the truck brake beams.  These models are equipped with an accurate Peacock 6500 brake housing and modern-style brake wheel.  The three bays are equipped with intricate and accurate Keystone Portloc “Combo” gates, allowing the prototype cars to be unloaded by simple gravity or an air-assisted pneumatic system.  We are very pleased to release yet another LV model, and for those who are paying attention, know that we will continue to execute Lehigh Valley prototypes of all kinds to the highest level possible.
