Lehigh Valley “USRE Green 1970” represents a different green variant from our most recent run. Both greens are correct! The history: Lehigh Valley engaged United States Railway Equipment (USRE) to refurbish and repaint its fleet of 1940s/1950s-built Bethlehem Steel built gondolas at its facility in Washington, Indiana. USRE repainted these in a variety of colors, and this blue-green color was utilized on many of the shopped cars. This model Is full of little details: a light gray interior wall color matching the prototype, etched-metal Wine tie-downs on the top chord of the car, and stand-off metal ACI plates — just like the prototype. This is the first time Tangent has released this scheme from April of 1970, and it is available today in 6 road numbers!
