I've got this with its B&M box and am wondering if Bachmann did make this or was this a nice lettering job by some one, Bachmann did make an unlettered green one and their stock colors are maroon and gold for B&M.

How old is it? 20 years ago, many low-end manufacturers weren't concerned with getting details right. The aim was to churn out product.

The other possibility is to do some more digging. It may turn out that the color scheme on your car was appropriate for a certain time and location.

B&M did have green and yellow passenger equipment until about 1940, when they switched to maroon and gold. I was curious if Bachmann made a
green and yellow version or what I have is just a nice custom job. I thinks this is what it is.
