Growth in intermodal markets had the effect of steering railroads away from boxcars in the modern era. However, it became clear that there was a market for the development of new boxcars in paper products, as shippers require high-grade boxcars. This stands against the trend of declining boxcar development of the time. Modern builders, such as Gunderson, Trinity and Trenton-Works, set themselves to the task of developing competitive boxcars. These cars have a distinctively modern aesthetic; they are known as 'Paper Boxes.'
ExactRail is proud to offer the Portand-built version of the Gunderson 6269 High Cube Boxcar in N-scale!
With accurate details such as the Stanray 'Redi-Roof', 12' door, and only highly authentic lettering styles and colors, the Gunderson 6269 High Cube Boxcar is a model long absent from the N-scale train market. As with all new ExactRail models, it features ExactRail's own narrow-style, body mounted draft box and the assurance that it has been designed, engineered and tooled in our own Orem, Utah facilities.
