In 1974 and with production lot #9749, Pullman-Standard's Bessemer, Alabama plant began the manufacture the 7315 cubic capacity “waffle” boxcar for the Norfolk and Western Railway. Production continued with additional deliveries to the Santa Fe, Milwaukee Road, Union Pacific and Detroit, Toledo and Ironton. As seen with our August 13th blog post, 'A Rare Prototype,' the P-S Waffle Box Car continues to serve Class I railroads to the present.
Available in beautiful, albeit simple green paint scheme. Accurately developed from high resolution builders images, the DTI paint scheme features refined artwork and nuanced logo-types all-the-way down to the correct data in the consolidated lube stencils for the as-delivered car.
Featuring refined artwork with exceptional attention to accuracy—just look at the paint stencils under the jacking pads, the builder’s logo with accurate lot numbers and the nuanced end-of-car lettering.
This scheme represents a common version of the GTW car without the GT logo. The GTW car has accurate lettering fonts, data and artwork, and each car number has been matched to those that were actually repainted into this paint scheme.
Available in the company’s striking Indian red paint scheme. The ATSF P-S 7315 “waffle” boxcar features exceptionally accurate artwork from the carefully crafted roman lettering style of the capacity data block to the circle cross logo—printed with amazing clarity over the ribs and waffles of the car side.
In 1979, FMC Corporation built 10’-6 and 12’-0 plug door versions of its 5327 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, and the distinctive paint schemes of the East Camden & Highland, Minnesota Dakota & Western, and New Orleans Public Belt were equally fresh. In 1979, this car was cool as your gold Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
