NEW! 5 Paint Schemes of the P-S 7315 “Waffle” Boxcar

 

We are proud to announce a new release of our popular P-S 7315 “Waffle” Box Car in 3 all new paint schemes and 2 long anticipated and improved re-releases in 6 new road numbers each!

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.

FMC 5327 12’-0 Plug Door Boxcar

FMC 5327 Boxcar

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.

In 1979, this car was cool as your gold Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
