Milwaukee Road “Original 1-68” in as-delivered yellow with the large, spelled out Milwaukee Road painted by Pullman-Standard in 1968. These cars predate the “America’s Resourceful Railroad” placarded cars, yet are very statistically-relevant with more than 500 cars on the roster. Additionally, our models are correctly painted in federal yellow, not gray nor orange! Another cool feature of our Milwaukee 4427 can be found with the outlet gates. This specific series of Milwaukee cars were delivered with gravity-pneumatic outlet gates – for use in grain or malt service – and Tangent is offering this new gate type with the introduction of this model! Our Milwaukee cars are available in your choice of 12 road numbers. Don’t miss out, these will go fast.
