Pullman had been making freight cars for more than half a
century when it hit a home run with the PS-1 box car. Introduced in
1947, it set the standard for post-WWII American freight cars. What
made the PS-1 a landmark was its welded construction — an
area in which Pullman-Standard led the industry. In addition to lighter
weight, welding offered superior strength and better resistance to
weather and corrosion than contemporary rived cars.

Like the EMD diesels that became ubiquitous on American
railroads, the PS-1 was part of the postwar shift away from customized,
railroad-specific locos and cars toward standardized designs produced
in large quantities on efficient assembly lines. No wonder the PS-1 was
soon followed by the highly successful PS-2 covered hopper, PS-3 open
hopper, PS-4 flatcar, and PS-5 gondola.

MTH Premier O Scale freight cars are the perfect complement to
any manufacturer’s scale proportioned O Gauge locomotives.
Whether you prefer to purchase cars separately or assemble a unit
train, MTH Premier Rolling Stock has the cars for you in a variety of
car types and paint schemes.

Virtually every sturdy car is offered in two car numbers which
makes it even easier than ever to combine them into a mult-car consist.
Many of MTH’s Premier Rolling Stock offerings can also
operate on the tightest O Gauge curves giving them even more added
versatitlity to your layout.
