Reading "GHH Repaint 1956" is one of our most popular and requested paint schemes for this gondola. 1956 has brought a fresh coat of black paint and the Reading's new "Speed Lettering" graphics to this 1941-built GHH class workhorse. Slanted and stylized speed lettering with Roman reporting marks and data - this is Classic Reading Company, all the way. We are very happy to offer 6 numbers in this scheme!
