– New York Central (NYC) Lot 946H “Delivery Gray 1-1965” shows us the first order of GATC 4700 covered hoppers.  This NYC group utilized GATC’s earlier 15-post body style and were delivered in gray with the NYC “cigar-band” graphics.  These models feature a high-mounted Miner 6600 power brake with a separate short release lever and modern brake wheel.  Take a moment to fully appreciate the unmistakable General American roofline, with the edge rivets, huck bolts, roof ribs and those gorgeous roof hatches with separately applied (metal!) grab irons and detailed lock mechanisms.  Underneath, these NYC cars were delivered with Wine Gravity Gates with their distinctive, angled bracing.  The cars were painted in a medium gray, not to be confused with the Despatch Shops-built 4700s that were a light gray. NYC modelers deserve accuracy, and we take great care to execute the lettering, from the reporting marks and logo down to the small paint code triangle and trust plate.  It’s all there.  And more importantly, it’s all accurate.  Speaking of the logo, we love that classy NYC cigar band mounted on a stand-off plate spanning three body ribs.  It’s time to haul grain.
