PTLX “Cooper Grain Colby KS 1974” Delivery is easily one of the sharper private elevator offerings we have offered, including the classic PTLX yellow and black carbody but with prototypically accurate burnt red lettering. All of the accurate details are present, including Morton running boards, early Miner outlet gates, truck-mounted brakes, and that classic yellow-painted brake wheel. While Colby was served by UP and Rock Island, these cars became free-roaming cars in large lease fleets in the mid-1980s. These cars come ready-to-operate in 3 numbers.
