LV “Original 1965 X58″ Insulated w/ LD” in the very attractive and memorable white carside with black ends scheme, plus the Cornell red flag logo on the door. PRR produced the legendary X58 boxcars for Lehigh Valley, a railroad that they had part ownership of. The white cars include black “LD” and “Insulated” stencils, plus the large “LEHIGH VALLEY” spelled out in the panels of the right side of the car. Like PRR paint practices, this car has an unpainted galvanized roof and running board, except for the ends that have the characteristic paint spray line as seen in overhead photos of these cars when fresh. These gorgeous models have a keystone underframe and represents production from 11-65, and include an accurate tiny return route stencil box like their prototypes – see the photo below for each car’s assignment info, and please remember that the assignments have very little to do with whether these cars were on your railroad or not! These classics are available in six road numbers.
