HO Scale Freight Car
X32 50 Foot Round Roof Box Car (Double Door)

55403
55405

History:  No other freight cars looked quite like these round roof cars. They were visible in freight yards all over America in the 1935-1960 era. These cars were first called "funiture cars", but soon found use in the automobile industry. The cars were equipped with Evans auto loader racks. The car started to disappear in the mid 1950's. A drastic drop in the early 1960's left cars that were still in service to be sold off or in most cases scrapped. Second owners kept them in service well into the 1970's. They under went many changes, such as. closing off the second door or removing it completely.

The history of the Pennsylvania Railroad rolling stock lettering is as follows:
January, 1930 Circle Keystone Lettering was applied.
June, 1954 Shadow Keystone lettering was applied.
July, 1956 Plain Keystone (black car) was applied.
Early 1960's PRR Initials started.

Kit Includes: injection molded plastic body, roof walk, brake wheel, X2f coupler, one piece molded coil semi-elliptic spring trucks and 33' chilled wheels with RP-25 flanged on brass axles.
