Overnight Merchandise Service lettering for NWP USRA boxcars

Part Number: NWP OMS-1

Price: $8.50

The Northwestern Paci.c took delivery of 100 USRA double-sheathed box cars from Standard Steel Car Company in November of 1919. Assigned road numbers 1900-1999 and painted box car red, the majority of these cars saw interchange service into the late 1950’s. In 1939, 22 of these cars were assigned to overnight express service on the road’s Eureka-Tiburon night passenger trains. (note the lack of interchange required data). This lettering scheme was in Dulux gold (yellow) on an all passenger dark green car. The color of the roof, underbody and truck sideframes was probably black car cement. Speci.c road numbers for this service are compiled from a list by Fred Stindt: 1900, 1904, 1906, 1909, 1910, 1916, 1917, 1939, 1943, 1946, 1947, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1960, 1964, 1969, 1984, 1986,1989, 1992 and 1997. In 1940 the banner paint scheme on an all black car was applied. (see Protocraft decal sheet NWP ON-1) Decal design and layout at Protocraft Decal Line. Artwork by Norm Buckhart.
