Restored to original colors. The 40f number is appropriate as the chassis - base plate has ridges along the length. The 154 has a plain base. No problems with this restore. The color referred to as butterscotch varies on the actual models. The color chosen off the shelf is burnt orange and is towards the darker end of the scale. They were supplied in packs of 6 and later in numbered boxes, some 40f, some dual numbered, some 154. I chose the dual numbered box for this restoration.See All Restorations
