Wabash “Original 1964” 1965+ Era is one of the many “classic” 1960s schemes seen on these cars, and represents one of the last schemes the railroad wore before being merged into the Norfolk and Western! This rolling billboard features Wabash’s classy dark blue scheme with large Wabash lettering, and then undoubtedly the largest Wabash flag applied to any rolling stock, adorned with the “Follow the Flag” logo. Pure class. These cars were delivered in 1964 with full running boards but were soon modified in 1965. These significant modifications included the removal of the roof running board, the lowering of the brake wheel housing and removal of high grab irons and end ladders. Our Wabash model replicates this 1965+ look with exact features: an accurate 1964-built body, bolt “remnants” on the sides and ends of the model, and a roof with the old bolt locations of the running board supports! The features go on and on, including an accurate “lowered” Miner hand brake, 1965 replacement full-width Apex crossover platforms, 70T trucks with 33” wheels, truck-mounted brake details and rotating Brenco-6 roller bearing caps. This stunning model is available in four numbers. (Please note there is no SKU 1/2 for this production).
