1923 ARA (X-29) 40' Steel Box Car

(Please Contact Your Atlas O Dealer)

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.

  • Highly detailed ABS body

  • Die-cast chassis

  • Flat or corrugated ends are per the prototype
