Tichy models of ACL flats and gondolas

Jim Mischke

I recall that the Tichy flat car and related composite gondola are reasonable Atlantic Coast Line prototypes.  These survived in very limited numbers past 1960.  

A couple questions.   My impression is that by 1960 they were held to on-line service only.  Is that true? Would there be any reasonable excuse for an interchange escapee in 1960?   Also, wasn't ACL lettering aluminum, not white?   If so, are there any appropriate aluminum ACL decals for these cars?
