Soo Line (ex-Belt Railway of Chicago) Triple Hopper Car #68541
The Soo Line (W.C.) purchased 50 70-ton offset-side triple hopper cars from the Belt Railway of Chicago in 1950. At least some of these cars were painted over in black and given new Soo Line reporting marks and car numbers. After a few years, the original BRC lettering and herald began to show through the black paint.
We've attempted to replicate this effect in our
2009 limited-run HO cars.
