Shortly before World War I, the NYC and PRR pioneered the construction of all-steel box cars with steel sheathing. In 1922, the NYC began delivering their NYC Specification 486 steel box car. These became the second most populous steel box cars on Americas railroads, second only to the PRR X29 cars. From the 1920s through the late 1950s, these cars could be found everywhere on the New York Central system, as well as traveling in interchange almost everywhere in North America.

Variations in design over the decades were relatively few.   In this production run, all of our models will have rectangular-paneled roofs, AB brakes, ARA U-section trucks, and a steel-grid running board along the top of the car.   We model two variations of doors and two variations of end caps.   Some models will have corrugated doors and some non-corrugated.  The two end-cap variations are 7-8 corrugated ends and Dreadnaught ends.

In addition to the NYC models, we are also offering eleven 2-packs of models in fantasy paint schemes.  For many of these fantasy options, the railroad ran USRA 40' steel box cars which are almost identical to the NYC Spec 486 cars.   The others ran similar cars in real life. 

These models come completely assembled and decorated.   Each 2-pack contains two distinctive cars with different road numbers.
