    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.
