Rock Island “Original 5-1969” wears original delivery paint for this 1969-built series, one of Rock Island’s six order lots for this prototype. Yes, the bold ROCK ISLAND scheme has been replicated to a Tangent-quality level. In addition to the big bold stenciling, the smaller details stand out: Rock-island style data, correct to the smallest 1” Pullman lot number, and Butler paint date. These cars are available in 12 accurate numbers. Rock Island had the second-largest fleet of this car type with 1,750 of these cars on the roster. More importantly, the 4427 high side was the largest covered hopper class on the railroad, and many of them went offline. Do you need some?
