L&N “Original 1965” represents the second Louisville & Nashville order of Greenville 86’ Double-Door box cars. Delivered in 1965, this group of 55 cars featured Center-of-Car Cushioning with truck mounted brakes. Fun fact: By 1965, L&N was using “Codit” reflective liquid on its reporting marks, resulting in among other things, an increase in nighttime visibility. We have duplicated this distinctive look with our model’s lettering – note the subtle change for the shade of yellow for the large L&N and car number versus the rest of the data and graphics. We sweat the little details too – our model is equipped with an accurate National Champion-Peacock hand brake and 70T trucks with 33” wheels and rotating Brenco-6 roller bearing caps. Finally, this L&N offering was part of the Ford’s Chicago Stamping Pool, resulting in an accurate Chicago Heights, Illinois return route stencil and is available in six different numbers.
