About the TLDX 'West Central Coop.' Paint Scheme:
Unfortunately we have been unfortunate to source much about the West Central Cooperative. We have been told that it was part of the Far-Mar-Co umbrella. This would make sense as some of the later delivered West Central 4427s were repainted into Far-Mar-Co colors in the 1970s. These cars were often seen roaming the west on a host of railroads. These 1964 delivered cars numbered from 3106 to 3111, were the first 6 cars leased to West Central, another 10 cars would follow shortly after.
