O 42' Coil Steel
The increased volume of coiled
steel transportation gave rise to a new purpose-built freight car.
Previously rolls of coiled-steel had generally traveled in specially
equipped gondola cars. In the 1960s a lighter type of car emerged
specifically for hauling coils of steel in an integral trough. The
car type gained popularity and eventually over 17,000 cars were
built. Atlas’ model replicates a 42’ design with a distinctive fishbelly side sill.
