Pennsylvania GATC 2600 Airslide Covered Hoppers 1959+

Like many railroads, the PRR leased/owned an assortment of General American 2600 cu.ft. Airslide covered hoppers. This decal set will help you letter their first group of 28 cars. The PRR leased this group starting in 1959. In HO, models from Athearn, Walthers, Eastern Car Works or Con Cor can be used. The cars have gray bodies and ends with black bays and trucks. The cars feature standard GACX lettering with a PRR Keystone.

GACX 44132-44159 (and possibly others, if I can find more photo proof... Do you have a photo of this series that you can share?)

Enough lettering is supplied to letter up to 3 cars.

A photo of GACX 44148 can be found in Vol 32, No.2 of "The Keystone." (The Official Publication of the Pennsylvania Railroad Technical and Historical Society.)





The decal set is printed in black and white. A detailed lettering diagram is included. Remember, this is 1 of 3 PRR Airslide sets that I make. Check out my decals sets for the 1961+ Shadow Keystone deliveries and 1964+ Plain Keystone deliveries.

Cost: $10.00 per set. Available in HO Scale.
