About this car and paint scheme...
During 1947, citizens from the U.S. donated money and food and had them sent to Europe to assist after the war.  This Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (Burlington Route) boxcar carries one of many colorful “Friendship Train” paint schemes. 
PIKO painstakingly reproduced the real-life "Illinois" boxcar that traveled the upper Midwest gathering goods in support of our European friends.  (This particular boxcar was painted and shipped to Europe as a part of the nationwide celebration.)
