  O 42' Coil Steel Car

Bookmark and Share

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.

Features Include:

  • Prototypical painting and lettering
  • See-through walks
  • Removable hood
  • Inside floor detail
  • Cut-levers
  • Includes 4 coils (2 small & 2 large)

Four road numbers are available per road name except for Bethlehem Steel and US Steel, which have two.
