Lettering for A&EC 1937 AAR boxcars - circa 1954

Part Number: A&EC-3

Price: $8.50

Between February and March 1954, the A&EC received 100 ex-Southern 1937 AAR boxcars, and assigned Series 1000-1099 to them. These were a random mix of both the early 1938 square corner cars and 1941 round (W) corner cars. These can be distingushed by the build dates of 9-11, 1938 and 2-3, 1941. All cars, including the 900 Series, were upgraded with Morton running boards. In April 1957 and January 1958, the A&EC received an additional 100 former Southern RR 1937 AAR boxcars, and assigned them as Series 900-999. Again refer to the build date to determine them as square or round corner cars. Most of these cars saw revenue service well into the 1960’s. Decal set designed and created at Protocraft Decals
