PTLX “FGDA Delivery 1973” is a classic private operator scheme. The Farmers Grain Dealers Association of Iowa leased several different groups of cars, however this run represents a large lot of 100 cars featuring a gorgeous “FGDA” placard on the side of the car. All of the detail lettering is present, from car specific draft gear reporting marks and numbers, to Pullman Patent numbers on the frame. Unpainted Morton galvanized running boards add a great little detail to the classic Pullman Leasing green and black colors. Matching the PTLX prototype, this model features accurate truck mounted brakes, accurate brake beams, and Timken rotating caps. We offer this scheme in 4 road numbers.
