1950's orange and blue Time Saver Service scheme

Part Number: B&O-55h

Price: $8.50

Built by Pressed Steel Car Co and delivered in June of 1947, the B&O received 1,000 of Class M-55h, and assigned Series 467000-467999. Few photos of this 1951 scheme seems to conrm the speculation that perhaps only a dozen, randomly chosen cars received this orange stripe, dark blue body and aluminum roof paint scheme. Cars 467071, 467109, 467434 and 467439 are at least four conrmed as such. (Lettering designed and created at Protocraft
