QTY

Shortly before World
War I, the NYC and PRR pioneered the construction of all-steel box cars
with steel sheathing. In 1922, the NYC began delivering their NYC
Specification 486 steel box car. These became the second most populous
steel box cars on Americas railroads, second only to the PRR X29 cars.
From the 1920s through the late 1950s, these cars could be found
everywhere on the New York Central system, as well as traveling in
interchange almost everywhere in North America. Variations in design
over the decades were relatively few, and Broadway Limited Imports will
model these cars as most of them appeared in the late 40s and 50s. BLIs
models will have rectangular-paneled roofs, corrugated doors, AB
brakes, ARA U-section trucks, and a steel-grid running board along the
top of the car. We will offer the cars with two versions of end caps
7-8 corrugated ends and Dreadnaught ends.
