#12030 - Company Decal Accessory Pack - B&P Motor Express

Decals For Truck Tractors & Trailers, 1/87 (HO) scale - Includes decals for B&P Motor Express company door logos with fuel and use permit information and truck unit numbers

B&P Motor Express was a general commodities LTL carrier operating throughout the northeastern United States based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a special commodities division hauling primarily steel from the mills in Pennsylvania and the Northeast and flatbed loads from the East Coast ports. Based on our research B&P generally operated east of the Mississippi River throughout the industrial "Rust Belt." Due to the geographical area they operated most owner-operators had fairly new, reliable COE trucks that were very well maintained and sported some of the classiest paint schemes on steel haulers in the area. Suitable readily available models would include Athearn Freightliner models, especially in the fancy owner operator paint schemes. Older Herpa North American COE prototype models would also be appropriate. Any resin or specialty sleeper equipped model truck tractors from the late '60s through late '70s would be good candidates as well. It appears that B&P owner-operators generally owned their own trailers and were often painted in matching or complimentary colors to the truck tractor. B&P's truck unit numbering scheme had coordinated tractor and trailer numbers with the trailer numbered 1,000 higher than the tractor [example - truck #74-6196 would be paired to the owner's trailer #74-7196].
