In 1923, the ARA (American Railway Association) proposed a standard design all-steel box car for the railroads. While the design was certainly a good one, the car never became a recommended practice due to questions of the selected inside width. Nonetheless, quite a few railroads opted for the design and rostered sizeable fleets. The largest group of cars, by far, was class X-29 of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Atlas O is offering this historic car with great features, all new from the rails up.

Features Include:

  • Highly detailed ABS body

  • Die-cast chassis

  • Flat or corrugated ends are per the prototype

  • Detail variations as appropriate for each version

  • Different door styles

  • All new truck design

  • Accurate painting and lettering

  • Minimum diameter curve: O-31 (3-Rail)

  • Minimum radius curve: 24" (2-Rail)
