Illinois Central Gulf 40' / 50' Boxcar 21" Lettering 1973+

By early 1973, the ICG changed to a bold font for its lettering and new I-ball emblem stencils were cut, utilizing a thinner cross section for the "I." Many 40' and 50' single door cars wore the larger 21" lettering (compared to the 18" lettering in set ICG-36 ).

Examples of these ICG cars have lasted through 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.

You can also find sample photos on the George Elwood Fallen Flags Website including the ICG 467921 and ICG 573922.

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.
