Preordered Cameo-Series #5
Chesapeak & Ohio
This 50’ standard box car with single door is blue with yellow bands and runs on Roller Bearing trucks. Designed for C&O’s Less-than-Carload service, this car was one of six specially painted for viewing by company stockholders in 1957, using the newly adopted Futura lettering style and featuring a yellow sill stripe to increase nighttime visibility. Ultimately, the LCL program did not have the required demand to be successful, and these cars were later painted back into standard fleet colors.
