Lettering for Chateau Martin's 1944 AAR (10'-6"IH) boxcar #1001

Part Number: CMWX-5

Price: $10.00

The Chateau Martin wine cars were mostly former 42’ express milk cars and were owned by the Commodities Car Company, Inc. of New York City (reporting marks CMWX). The Chateau Martin brand was owned by Eastern Wine Corporation of New York. Martin had a total of 79 of these cars.

Interestingly enough, they did own one 1944 AAR steel boxcar: #1001. This lettering set is designed for that car. The cars were painted in a light burgundy - we suggest Pantone #224C or #225C, but the color was subject to fading and many shades lighter would depict the cars during various stages of their useful life. Decal set designed and created at Protocraft Decals.

Background color shown above is not included in decal sheet
