Illinois Central 2 and 3 Bay Open Hopper 1967+
The IC had a varied open hopper fleet through the 60s and 70s, with many cars built new, and others refurbished and/or rebuilt. During this time, many of the cars would receive the new Split Rail logo, introduced in 1967.
In HO Scale, Sunshine Models, Atlas, Athearn, Stewart, and
Accurail make 2 and 3 bay hoppers that can be used as starting
points to model some of the IC's cars.
Additional photos of cars can be found on the George Elwood Fallen Flags Website including the IC 67198 . The IC/GM&O Color Guide has another example of IC 83150 on page 67.
A detailed lettering diagram is included. This set includes enough lettering for 1 car and is printed in white. The set also includes some extra lettering for a Wood Chip Service car, to model a car that was modified with height extensions. (See photo below) You provide the ACI label, if it is appropriate for your era; the decal set provides all other lettering.
