This highly detailed model is based on the 40' wood refrigerator cars built by Pullman for the Northern Refrigerator Car Co. in 1930. With its rooftop ice hatches, USRA-style fish belly underframe and vertical brake shaft, it is representative of the thousands of similar cars that were built during the "Billboard" era of American railroads.
These ready-to-run cars feature accurate painting and printing including door hinges, ladders, grab irons and end straps; opening roof hatches; realistic handle and latch detail; wood grain finish detail on car body; and 40-ton friction bearing trucks with AccuMate(R) couplers.
