PC “Repaint 1969+” is our first foray into world of Penn Central 86’ Boxcars. This repaint models a former PRR X60B class car that has been shopped at the PC’s ex-PRR Sam Rea Shops in 1968. Note that the prototype car was modified in 1965, with the removal of the roof running board, the lowering of the brake wheel housing and removal of high grab irons and end ladders. If you look closely under the beautiful PC green paint job, you can see the accurate 1964-built body with all of these “torched off remnants” showing on the sides and ends of the model. Even the roof on our model features the old bolt locations of the running board supports! 70T Trucks with 33” wheels and rotating Hyatt roller bearing caps finish off this stunning PC offering. Available in three road numbers – do not miss it! (And don’t worry, we still will offer PC delivery cars in a future run!)
