I went to your website, but could not find the DRGW "Original Brown 1967 DF". Very poor website.
Very hard to find things. You need a What's New link at the top of your home page If you're going
attract buyers to your new products.

" Many household appliance brands rode the rails: Admiral, Whirlpool, or Roper, to name a few.
" Nicknamed âbaby hi-cubesâ by shippers, railfans, and rail employees alike, the PS-1 40â
" âMini-Hy Cubeâ boxcars were early examples of purpose-built boxcars, built by Pullman-Standard
" in Bessemer, AL. At 4900 cubic foot capacity, most of these distinctively small yet tall cars
" were purchased for appliance loading out of origins in U.S. Midwestern states. Five railroads
" bought these cars in 1967-1968, and they were sent to destinations all over North America
" delivering appliances to warehouse receivers and team tracks. Because some of the cars were
" pooled, any roadname could be consigned to literally any destination, making these cars
" ânationwide roamers,â meaning you can justify any roadname anywhere. Later in their service
" lives, most cars were repurposed for paper loading, and by the 1990s many remaining cars were
" utilized in MOW and other company service roles.
"
"
" The Tangent Scale Models HO scale PS-1 âMini-Hy Cubeâ Boxcar replica features a prototypical
" âslight peakâ roof, separate underframe brake components with wire piping, narrow ladders and
" sill steps, and âsee-throughâ crossover platforms. These replicas include the
" ânear-scaleâ draft gear that has been standard on all recent Tangent releases, which includes
" the âside keyâ detail with Kadee all-metal couplers. Detailed âtrombone styleâ coupler
" lift bars are also present on our replicas with one of two styles to match the prototype.
" Finally, the models are equipped with the correct Tangent Barber S-2-A 70-ton roller bearing
" trucks and 33â CNC-machined wheelsets, so our models look as good as they operate. These small
" yet tall models are sure to be stunners on your layout!
" Our August 2017 release includes the following 6 RTR paint schemes, mostly focused on repaint
" paint schemes.
" - DRGW "Original Brown 1967 DF" in the classic original freight car brown scheme from November
" 1967, with the iconic DRGW logo and spelled out âThe Action Road.â These cars have black
" ends with white paint at the top to denote the excess height, and include a large âDFâ on the
" car side advertising the carâs cushioning capabilities. All this means that there is a lot of
" graphics on these small yet tall cars! This series of DRGW cars all have a return to NYC,
" Evansville IN route stencil and were originally assigned to Whirlpool. Keep in mind the real
" cars were pooled, so any roadname can work on your layout because they were assigned to service
" from that specific appliance factory! These beautiful cars are available in 3 road numbers. SKU
" 18016-01 through 18016-03.
" - BN "Cascade Green 1973" continues our BN repaint series started last year (now sold out). This
" BN repaint variant from February 1973 is applied to a former CBQ car. This car has a stunning
" repaint with a large BN logo painted high on the car side, âExceeds Plate Câ logo, ACI label,
" and other standard BN touches like white delineators (yesterdayâs âconspicuity stripesâ).
" Check out our stellar BN green! At some point during the 1980s, BN began to shift some of these
" cars from appliance service to paper service. Donât miss out! This cool repaint scheme is
" available with road number 281465 in order to accurately reproduce the prototype car (pictured on
" our website), but donât despair, we have another BN number available below! SKU 18019-01.
" - BN "Cascade Green 1975" represents a different BN repaint variant, this time from May 1975.
" This car is a stunning repaint with a large BN logo that is lower on the car, âExceeds Plate
" Câ logo, ACI label, and other standard BN touches like white delineators (yesterdayâs
" âconspicuity stripesâ). Check out our stellar BN green! At some point during the 1980s, BN
" began to shift some of these cars from appliance service to paper service. This car has âBNâ
" and the car number stenciled on the truck, just like the prototype! This unique repaint scheme
" is available with road number 281474 in order to accurately reproduce the prototype car (pictured
" on our website). SKU 18020-01. Pair your purchase with our 1973 BN variant listed above!
" - CB&Q "Havelock Repaint 1970" in a unique Havelock-applied green, applied in June 1970 and is a
" great and unique car for 1970s/1980s modelers. Like the prototype car, this model is stenciled
" with a return route stencil to ATSF Galesburg IL and has Havelock-style lettering on the car
" side. With its large spelled-out âBurlingtonâ graphic against the green, this car is a
" stunner and is a great compliment to our CB&Q red cars, as well as our new BN variants released
" above (assuming you model early BN). SKU 18021-01.
" - ICG "1972 Repaint" w/ Skinny Letters in the classic orange from IC heritage, however this car
" is an ICG repaint with âskinnyâ lettering applied by Centralia (IL) shops in November 1972
" and is typical for cars repainted in that era. These IC repaints include many common stenciling
" options seen on freight cars from that era, including yellow boxes with âthis car excess
" heightâ notation, âExceeds Plate Câ logo, ACI label, single COTS box, and âReturn to
" ICGRRâ¦â return route stencils. Like the original IC cars delivered from Pullman-Standard in
" 1967, these cars retain the âCushion Underframeâ and âslashâ lettering in the upper left
" corner, as well as the âService With Safetyâ slogans above the side ladders. This car is
" modeled from prototype car number ICG 480050 (a new series following the IC-GM&O merger), and is
" available in this road number only (although see the SKU number below for another ICG variant).
" SKU 18022-01.
" - ICG "1977 Repaint" w/ Wide Letters in the classic orange from IC heritage, however this car is
" an ICG repaint with âwideâ lettering applied by Centralia (IL) shops in 1977. These IC
" repaints include yellow boxes with âthis car excess heightâ notation, double COTS box, and
" âReturn to ICGRRâ¦â return route stencils. Like the original IC cars delivered from
" Pullman-Standard in 1967, these cars retain the âCushion Underframeâ and âslashâ
" lettering in the upper left corner, as well as the âService With Safetyâ slogans above the
" side ladders. This car is modeled from prototype car number ICG 480070, and is available in this
" road number only. SKU 18023-01.

" Scale Models Pullman-Standard PS-1 âMini-Hy Cubeâ Boxcar, a necessary cog in the unique 1960s
" box car boom. Pricing for RTR models is $44.95, with quantity discounts for direct purchases
