Penn Central X58 50' Boxcar 1968+

SE-04 PC X58 Boxcar Large Logo 1968+
SE-05 PC X58 Boxcar Horizonal Lettering 1970+
SE-06 PC X58 Boxcar Stacked Lettering 1970+

These 3 decal sets are aimed at lettering the former PRR X58 boxcars in various Penn Central Schemes. These sets concentrate on three versions of full PC Green repaints, and some extra lettering is included for mid-70s patchout jobs that became fashionable before the formation of Conrail.

Oh no, so much PC decal goodness: Which decal set is right for you?

Each decal set includes enough lettering for one complete car. (You supply the ACI label...) All sets include X58/A/B/C specific class lettering, return routes, and PC style COTS.

Penn Central X58 boxcars served through the Penn Central and Conrail eras, with examples of fully-lettered PC cars lasting into the 90s.

These decals are specifically designed for Tangent Scale Models' new (2015) X58 Boxcar. Yes, that means care has been taken to size the PC Worm and other lettering (as appropriate) to lay correctly across those pesky ribs. No more melting decals and incorrectly sized logos. The decals may look a little weird on the sheet, but will lay correct on the model...

The boxcar is painted green with an unpainted galvanized roof (with green edge overspray) and black trucks. The silk screened decal set is printed in black, white and yellow. A detailed lettering diagram is included.

Cost: $8.00 per set. Available in HO Scale.

Shipping: See main page for shipping details.
