Atlas HO 40' Postwar Box Car

 

Spurred by the postwar business boom and in an effort to replace worn out equipment, North American railroads built large numbers of 40' box cars to the AAR standard designs beginning in 1945. Prototypes were built with different combinations of roof styles, ends and doors. Our tooling includes many of the more common options for these details.

 

Features:

  • State of the art highly detailed tooling
  • Many separately applied details such as ladders, grab irons, etc.
  • 4 different end styles – 4/4, Early and Late Improved Dreadnaught or“Dartnot”
  • 2 different roofs – straight or diagonal panel
  • Superior or Youngstown doors
  • Seven or eight rung ladders
  • Fully detailed underframe
  • Free rolling trucks with blackened metal wheelsets
  • Carefully researched prototypical paint schemes
