Atlas O 1923 ARA (X-29) 40' Steel Box Car

In 1923, the ARA (American Railway Association) proposed a standard design all-steel box car for the railroads. While the design was certainly a good one, the car never became a recommended practice due to questions of the selected inside width. Nonetheless, quite a few railroads opted for the design and rostered sizeable fleets. The largest group of cars, by far, was class X-29 of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

 

Features:

  • Highly detailed ABS body
  • Die-cast chassis
  • Flat or corrugated ends are per the prototype
  • Detail variations as appropriate for each version
  • Different door styles
  • All metal separately-applied grab irons, ladders and stirrups
  • Accurate painting and lettering
  • Minimum diameter curve: O-31 (3-Rail)
  • Minimum radius curve: 24" (2-Rail)
  • Some assembly required for undecorated models.
