O BERWICK 60' HY-CUBE
(Click thumbnail to enlarge)
Berwick Forge & Fabricating
built over 23,000 freight cars in its nearly 20 years of existence in
Berwick, Pennsylvania. Their designs were very successful and most of
the cars are still in service today. While Berwick built virtually all
modern types of freight cars, they are perhaps best known for their
50' and 60' box cars.
This Atlas O model replicates
the interesting series of 60' high-capacity cars that were built by
Berwick in the late 70s. These Hy-Cube cars feature centered double
plug-doors and a waffle pattern on the car sides.
