Holt repainted this model based on the prototype B&M car (there were about 300 of these 43-foot long cars re-built in their shops in 1957 from cars originally constructed during WWII, and lasted into the 1960s). Holt used dry transfers, decals, and a flat clear lacquer for a slightly weathered look.

These models were produced in 1963 and 1964 and had 3 variations. In the photo are two of the variations. The rear unit is the more common unpainted blue-green model. The unit in the foreground has a black shell, which is painted dark blue and is the rarest of the three variations. The third variation is also painted dark blue, but it has painted ladders.
