Raised Plate ACI Placards – 8-Pack
In 1967 the rail industry introduced a nationwide system to track freight cars as they moved across the railroad network. The visual result of this technology was the application of ACI labels to the side of freight cars. These labels – or placards – were required on all freight cars from 1968 to ~1979, although the labels lasted far longer than that and can still be seen today. These finely-executed placards allow you to reproduce this detail on your freight car fleet, and include correct dimensions. These placard parts are not available anywhere else!
