Micro-Trains - Z Scale - Great Northern Circus Series - Car 06 - #3336 - Green w/White Lettering (SKU 489-50100260)
Available On: July 1, 2017
This series will feature 10 prototypical 40’ boxcars that were decorated by Great Northern with experimental paint schemes in 1956. The cars were put into service in the GN system and some schemes were approved for future use. Due to some of the bright and gaudy schemes, this experimental group of cars were dubbed the ‘Circus Cars’.
This 40’ standard box car with double doors is green with white lettering and runs on Bettendorf trucks. In an effort to develop a new paint scheme, Great Northern decorated a number of box cars in different experimental paint schemes in 1956 and sent them across the GN network for feedback. Due to the bright and gaudy colors, this group of cars were dubbed the “Circus Cars”.
