Illinois Central Gulf 40' / 50' Boxcar (Early Thin Lettering) 1972+

The ICG's first version of its freight colors utilized a thinner font with a wider "I" in the I-ball emblem. Cars painted in the first 6 months or so of the merger at the Centralia and McComb shops received this scheme.

Examples of these ICG cars lasted through the ICG era, into the 1990s. This decal set includes all of the data you need to decal one 40' or 50' car. Branchline has excellent 40' and 50' kits available to provide starting points to model these cars.

A photo of ICG 416224 can be found in the IC/GM&O Color Guide by James Kinkaid. (Published by Morning Sun) on page 121.

A detailed lettering diagram is included, with suggested lettering layouts for the 40' and 50' cars. This set is printed in black, white and yellow.

Cost: $6.00 per set.
