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

April 30, 2015

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

To see them and more 50′ Boxcar check out the White Rose Hobbies Website HO Scale 50′ Boxcar Page. They are expected late 2015.  You may contact us to reserve this or any upcoming model.

HO-sp-gondola-01About the Gunderson 2420

Beginning in March of 1965, Gunderson built nine hundred 2,420 cu. ft. capacity gondolas for the Southern Pacific. With a straight, deep side sill, massive side stakes and a heavy duty top cord, these cars had a distinguished appearance without comparison. The Southern Pacific implemented rebuilding programs for these cars on two occasions, which kept them on the rails well into the nineties. ExactRail has precision captured the beautiful lines of these cars from the full flute side panels to the dreadnaught ends. Accurately decorated in Southern Pacific as well as classic period-era Heritage Decoration schemes, these classics are sure to please modelers from all corners of the hobby.

Retail $19.99     WRH $15.99

Available in the following road names:

SP, ATSF, ICG, GN, SCL, CR
