    St. Louis Southwestern (SSW) “Cotton Belt” B-70-42 Repaint 1984+ offers an accurate 1980s era repainted scheme.  In 1984, the SP/SSW was busy renumbering some of the SSW’s B-70-42 boxcars into the 59000 series.  Their new paint jobs stood out with a smaller but distinctive yellow “CUSHION-CAR” graphic on the left with the familiar “COTTON BELT” bold graphics to the right.  Sharp-eyed fans will note the sans-serif reporting marks and data – this is accurate for this era of SSW B-70-42 repaints.  This Cotton Belt repaint scheme features Morton crossover platforms, an Ajax handbrake and separately installed body-brake style truck brake beams.  We’ve also applied the “3rd Arm” door hardware along the top door tracks to match the prototype.  The accurate black 70-ton “Birdsboro foundry” Barber S-2 trucks have rotating “Timken” roller bearing caps.
