Missouri Pacific “Original Gray” in the classic original gray scheme from 1959. Like some General American painted cars, these cars include the correct black underframe coloring. MP specified a black car cement roof, which makes them really stand out. On the side of these cars is the classic Missouri Pacific “buzzsaw” logo! We have 3 road numbers available for these models and they are essential to MP modelers as well as interchange road modelers. As a prototype reference of this car offline, Tangent has an example waybill of a MP car offline on EL train NE-74 delivering a load to Agway in Corning NY, courtesy of Pat Moore, EL historian.
