Tangent 25031-06 MP 271658 Missouri Pacific “Original 1968” Greenville 86′ Double Plug Door Box Car

Missouri Pacific (MP) “Original 1968” represents another frequently-requested paint scheme! MP ordered five different lots of Greenville auto parts box cars, and this lot was the largest at 157 units. The prototypes were delivered with MP “buzzsaw” logos on the right side of the car, and economical “Cushion Car” lettering on the left. Of course, as any self-respecting MP modeler will tell you, there is so much more to MP lettering than slapping a buzzsaw on the car. Tangent’s industry-leading artwork has duplicated the distinctive and intricate MP lettering style from the reporting marks down to the smallest stencils. The cars offered in this run were assigned to Ford’s Chicago Stamping Pool, resulting in an accurate Chicago Heights, Illinois return route stencil. Center-of-Car Cushioning draft gear detail variation with yellow end handles? Check. Distinctive Klasing 1150 hand brake? Check. Accurate Apex crossover platforms? Check. 100-Ton “Low Profile” Barber S-2-C Roller Bearing Trucks with 36” wheels and rotating Timken caps? Check, check and check! These cars lasted in original paint into the late 1980s and went everywhere. Our models are available with your choice of six road numbers, with three cars showing 8-68 build dates and three cars showing 9-68 build dates.
