– Union Pacific (UP) “Gray Repaint 1989” takes us back to the late 1980s, where the former MoPac Desoto, MO car shops were busy repainting cars in distinctive light gray paint.  These UP repaints feature the later GATC 13-post body along with body-mounted brake hardware.  Underneath, these replicas feature accurate Enterprise “Gravac” combo gates, allowing the prototype cars to be unloaded by simple gravity or an air-assisted pneumatic system.  This UP model is equipped with 100-ton Barber S-2 trucks with rotating Timken caps.  On the B-End, take a peek at the accurate Apex-style crossover platforms and Ellcon-National 1600 power brake.  If you look closely, there is a hole behind the brake cylinder on the vertical slope sheet.  Yes, this is accurately replicated on the model, including the snaking air line.  We see you, patient 1980s and 1990s modelers, and we are pleased to release these UP repaints.
