Now Available!  Many New Schemes on the FMC 5327 Boxcar with 12' Plug Door

We at ExactRail are excited to announce an upcoming release of our FMC 5327 Boxcar with 12'-0 Plug Door.

In 1979, FMC Corporation built 10’-6 and 12’-0 plug door versions of its 5347 exterior post boxcar.  Of the two versions, the 12’-0 plug door is the most distinctive.  The wide plug door on a 50’ exterior post car was very modern for this era.  Still a common sight on the rails today, but now looking a little tired, the FMC 5327 Boxcar with 12'-0 Plug Doors will feel at home on your modern era layout.

These cars are on the water and will be arriving at the Port of Long Beach any day now.  Currently we anticipate an early December 2021 release.  We are not taking pre-orders.  Watch for more details.
