October 31, 2009

New Product Announcements: Gunderson 5200 Box Car & PC&F Beer Car

ExactRail announces the release of the new PC&F Beer Car in the ExactRail Platinum Series. Refresh your layout with the most innovative manufacturer in the industry and update your rolling stock with ExactRail’s PC&F Beer Car. The PC&F Beer Car will be available for purchase on www.dccinstalled.com early December 2009.

blog_sp_beer_carBeginning in 1977, Pacific Car and Foundry (PC&F) released a heavily insulated refrigerator car with internal, air-bag loading devices and 20″ travel, sliding-sill underframe. These cars affectionately became known as “Beer Cars” for the refreshing cargo that they frequently carried.

ExactRail has engineered and tooled the most accurate version of the PC&F Beer Car ever! As the third release in our ground breaking Platinum Line, ExactRail’s PC&F Beer Car is complete with our exclusive stand-apart door tracks, separately applied door bars, wire-formed coupler cut levers, and separately applied air hoses. With stand-off brake rigging, drop down brake rods, wire formed brake clevis hangers, and CNC-machined ASF 100 ton Ride Control trucks, ExactRail satisfies your demands with the precision you desire.

The Platinum Series PC&F Beer Car will be available in the following roadnames (3 #’s each):

Southern Pacific (SP) – Missouri Pacific (MP) – Santa Fe (ATSF) – Burlington Northern (BN) – Western Pacific (WP) – Burlington Northern (RBCS)

MSRP: $29.95  WRH: $23.99

ExactRail also announces the release of the all new Gunderson 5200 Box Car in the ExactRail Express Series. With the ExactRail Express Series, ExactRail brings precision and innovation to you for less. The 5200 Box Car will be available for purchase on www.dccinstalled.com early December 2009.

blog_bn_5200Built in the late sixties and early seventies, the Gunderson 5200 is a classic-looking boxcar with modern appeal. Constructed near the end of the internal post, double sheathed box car era, the straight sill and centered YSD 8ft doors lends itself to clean modern symmetry on a car with vintage aesthetics.

Faithful to the prototype, ExactRail reproduces the Gunderson 5200 with accurate 4/4 corrugated ends, non-overhanging roof, notched sill, and double 8′ doors. Furthermore, ExactRail matches the correct ASF 70 Ton Ride Control or Barber 70 Ton S-2 trucks of the BN, SP and SP&S prototypes with ExactRail’s exclusive equalized trucks and CNC-machined wheels.

The Express Series Gunderson 5200 Boxcar  will be available in the following roadnames:

Spokane Portland & Seattle (SP&S) – Southern Pacific (SP) – Burlington Northern (BN) – Chessie System (B&O) – Louisville & Nashville (L&N) – Gulf Mobile & Ohio (GM&O)

MSRP: $19.95  WRH: $15.99
