ICG “Original Orange 1972 Thin” replicates the first lot of PS4750s delivered in “Illinois Central Gulf” orange paint. The IC took delivery of their first 4750 order in August 1972, right in the middle of their merger with the GM&O. As a result, the newly-named ICG accepted 250 of the 300 car order painted and lettered in the new I-Rail logo and “thin” ICG lettering. Later orders would feature the thicker lettering seen on previous Tangent releases. For those of you keeping score at home, ICG was one of the largest purchasers of Pullman’s PS4750 and they went big with more than 2000 cars! This is the first time this scheme has been offered commercially on an accurate PS4750 model and it is a stunner. Tangent’s tooling options are on full display, as this car features the early 4750 body and brake arrangement, angled brake beam, 8-grab iron ladder ends, Morton running boards, Keystone Portloc outlet gates and Timken roller bearing caps. Accuracy like no other
