New paint schemes on the HO Scale Atlas 50′ Postwar Boxcar

Atlas will be releasing six new paint schemes on their 50′ Postwar Boxcar as part of their Master Series of model trains. In addition to the new paint schemes the cars will also have one of three different side sill styles – straight, tabbed and fishbelly and 8′ & 9′ Superior or Youngstown doors.

Prototype:

At the end of World War II, railroads ordered large numbers of 50′ AAR boxcars with a standard design that was first widely used in the late 1940s. This design was based on the original 1937 AAR design but was modified in the post-war era to include: improved dreadnaught end and diagonal panel roofs with standard or overhanging design. These 50′ boxcars were a common sight on American railroads well into the 1970s and 1980s.

Each of the cars will be available in 2 numbers per roadname. List $35.95 White Rose Hobbies Price $24.99
