Blue Bird – Later Era Budd cars, Pullman dome and E8’s to receive Banner Blue paint

We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the help of members of the Wabash Railroad Historical Society, we will be painting the Blue Bird cars with the blue color appropriate to the era.
The “as delivered” Blue Bird Budd six car sets and the “as delivered” Pullman Standard built dome parlor will have the darker ” Wabash Blue “. The “as delivered” E7A and E8A’s painted in the “tri color scheme” will likewise receive the darker “Wabash Blue”.
The “later era” Budd six car sets, the Pullman standard dome parlor, the Norfolk & Western versions of the cars and the solid blue E8’s in both Wabash and N&W lettering will be painted the lighter  “WAB #41 Banner Blue”.
