Pennsylvania H40 GATC 2600 Airslide Covered Hoppers - Shadow Keystone SK2b 1961+



The PRR purchased several small groups of General American 2600 cu.ft. Airslide covered hoppers in 1961. (Three orders, 45 cars total.) 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..



PRR 261420-261425 (I have never seen a photo of this 6 car order. Do you have a photo of this series that you can share?)
PRR 261426-261437 (SK2b/a GACX hybrid scheme)
PRR 261438-261460 (SK2b scheme)

Enough lettering is supplied to letter 2 different cars.

Additional photos:
-A builder photo of 261443 is on the PRRT&HS Site.
-Railcarphotos.com has the other side of 261445.



The decal set is printed in black, white and red. A detailed lettering diagram is included, showing both schemes that I am aware of. You supply an ACI label if it is needed for your era, but I did work in some of those wonderful PC style later COTS panels for those of you modeling 1974+.



Remember, this is 1 of 3 PRR Airslide sets that I make. Check out my decals sets for the 1959+ PRR/GACX Leased deliveries and 1964+ Plain Keystone deliveries.

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