CSX “Repaint 1991+” leads off this release, offering examples of repaints from B&O’s first order of cars in 1969. Applying CSX paint to a Tangent replica is not a walk in the park — It is all about the big AND little details. This car features the large CSX logo on the center of the sides and accurate “Ease up!” stickers on the corners. Apparently, the more the better, since CSX also applied tiny “Ease up!” stickers on each door. Yes, we have faithfully reproduced this extraordinarily small detail. Get out your magnifying glass if you want to read the CSX “Quality Check” oval sticker applied above the COTS by Grand Rapids employees. This Greenville car features Morton style crossover platforms, an Ajax hand brake housing, accurate End-of-Car Cushioning details with truck mounted brake hardware, and 70-Ton Barber S-2 Trucks with 33” wheels and accurate “Timken” roller bearing caps. Check out the CSX-specific modern features in this release, including the large tack board mounting location on the door and the single and double “third arms” on the top door tracks. We are now offering CSX in six different numbers!
