Part Number: PC-3528

Price: $319.00

Protocraft’s all-brass model of Texas & Pacic’s 1937 AAR 10’-0” IH of this distinctive boxcar. Never before done in O Scale, these exquisite and highly detailed models are built by Boo Rim Precision of Korea. The Texas & Pacic ordered 500 cars in December 1937, built by Pullman-Standard under Lot 5581, and assigned road numbers as Series 40000-40499. Later in July 1940, the T&P received an additional 500 cars from Mt. Vernon Car Co, and assgined Series numbers 40500-40999. The cars employed the then standard square corner brace design, 4/5 Dreadnaught ends, wood running boards, and Universal Power hand brake assemblies., and were delivered with Youngstown steel doors. Unique to the T&P, was the transverse mounted air reservoir mounted close to the edge of the left side of the car for easier maintenance access. In 1950, the cars were rebuilt and a stronger 5-Panel Creco door was installed, giving the cars an additional unique appearance. It includes all the Creco door locks, lift handle, rollers and track assembly. Protocraft has chosen to model this version. The model’s trucks roll on hard steel sintered rib-back wheels with ball-bearings and have working journal covers.
