ALL NEW MODEL!

O USRA SINGLE-SHEATHED BOX CAR



Prototype Information:
Designed by the United States Railway Administration during World War I, the first of these 50-ton outside-braced boxcars was built in October of 1918. These cars quickly became a common sight on railroads from coast-to-coast. The USRA design was so successful that many single-sheathed cars built through out the 1920s were virtual copies, or "clones" with a variation of the steel ends.

While many of the cars were later rebuilt with steel sides to extend their service life, several railroads used the as-built cars in maintenance of way service well into the 1960s.

- Highly detailed ABS body
- True 1/4" dimensions and details
