About the Chicago & North Western '1980 Repaint' paint scheme:

In the early 1980s, the Chicago & North Western was shopping and repainting their fleet of Bethlehem 3483 Hoppers. These cars received various styles of repaints throughout this time. Earlier repaints like those offered here included a large ball & bar logo mounted to a metal sheet that was then bolted to the cars ribs. Other repaints had the ball & bar logo painted onto the car side. Later repaints received green paint and a smaller logo.
