Mount Vernon Shops Announces New Decals - Mount Vernon Shops

Supplee Milk Car

While Mount Vernon Shops specializes in HO-scale decals, the company offers to create existing decals in other scales upon request, including S.
From the company's web site, "The Supplee-Wills-Jones Company operated multiple facilities along the PRR System in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware or along railroads that interchanged with the PRR. These milk tank cars, although looking externally like reefers, actually contained two glass-lined tanks which were handled as an express car on train due to the timelines of transporting whole milk to creameries where it could be processed into various dairy products. In 1954 the PRR outlawed hauling milk by long-haul rail and these cars were permanently removed from service."

PRR Wreck Derrick

From the company's web site, "The majority of the PRR's Wreck Derrick fleet was built by Industrial Works, later Industrial Brownhoist. There were four major classes of derricks used post-1900: W100, W120, W150, and W250. With each came an increased lifting capacity. The W250 were required after purchase of the J1a locomotives in 1945, all were steam powered and self-propelled. In addition to these major classes, each one had subclasses based on the length of their booms."

PRR F25 Flat Car (Shadow Keystone)

From the company's web site: "The F25 flat car was the genesis of the PRR's well flat car fleet. They also were a signature car strictly from the looks as a massive riveted flat car. The first two were initially built at Altoona in February 1916, with an additional 25 cars being completed by late 1917. Due to the service they were in, the entire car fleet lasted into early Penn Central until age forced them to be retired."
