– TLDX “Ex-MKT Restencil” 1988+ shows an MKT-painted car that has been returned to Pullman-Standard from its original MKT lease.  Now wearing TLDX reporting marks, the ex-MKT cars continued to work through the 1980s.  The model features a weathered red body color (compared to the delivery MKT red car color) and is a study in era-specific small lettering.   The original side and end MKT reporting marks and car number are patched out and replaced with TLDX stencil graphics.  The CAPY line has been carefully painted out, correct for the 1988 era.  The car was reweighed by the Katy’s Ray Yard scale (Denison, TX) in 1984.  An accurate horizonal style COTS stencil has been applied by the MKT in the 1970s.  The original Apex-style crossover platforms were damaged, replaced with unpainted galvanized Morton-style parts.  The roof hatches have also been swapped out to a smooth replacement style.  This great example of 1980s-early 1990s railroading
