Description
 
aced with increasing numbers of parts and expensive shipping systems, auto makers approached freight car builders in the early 1960s about creating a universal box car for heavy parts. The basic design evolved into a smooth-side, interior post car, where load restraints could be mounted. Heavier castings such as brake drums, engine blocks, transmissions and so on are carried in special baskets, designed for easy unloading/loading with forklifts. The large single door provides easy access to the interior. These cars can still be seen moving in priority trains to and from America's auto assembly plants.

The HO Scale models come fully assembled and are offered in 1960s (old) or 1990s (new) paint schemes. Working knuckle couplers are also provided. To expand your fleet, matching 2-Packs with additional numbers (932-23551 series) are available separately.
