lettering set for TH&B’s 10’-6” IH steel boxcars - 1952 yellow scheme

Part Number: TH&B-3a

Price: $8.50

The TH&B was a subsidairy of the Canadian Pacific and New York Central. Based in Hamilton, Ontario, the TH&B never reached Buffalo or Toronto, and was wholly absorbed into the CP in 1977. Between May and August 1949, the National Steel Co of Canada built 300 steel boxcars to replace the aging USRA boxcars bought from the NYC in 1940. These were assigned road numbers as Series 3000-3299. In 1953, the TH&B received a second order of 300 cars of the same design as Series 3300-3599. Series 3000-3299, originally painted tuscan red with all white stenciling in 1949, were repainted in the new yellow and black scheme starting in 1952. (note: in 1955, a second yellow and black lettering scheme was introduced and applied to both series as the cars came in for repainting and heavy servicing. - see Protocraft Decal sheet TH&B-3b)
