Based on a popular box car produced by ACF (American Car & Foundry) from the late 1940?s through the mid-1950?s, this model is representative of the thousands of similar cars that ran on virtually all North American rail lines. The 40? Sliding Door Box Car, considered an American tradition, was originally built to transport goods in the harsh weather found in various parts of the United States.

This car features such accurate details as the diagonal roof panels and improved dreadnaught ends characteristic of the prototype. These stunning replicas feature striking, accurate paint schemes and printing and are designed for many hours of reliable operation and O Scale fun!

Based upon another popular prototype car by ACF (American Car & Foundry), this ATLAS O TRAINMAN? model captures the look and function of one of the most utilitarian of all freight cars. Often called, ?the work horse of the steel industry?, the gondola is basically a flat car with sides, allowing more, and different types, of loads to be transported.

The gondola dates to about 1830 and was first used on early railways and tramways to move coal. Ours features crisp detailing, including a see-through brakewheel platform and accurate painting and printing. The ATLAS O TRAINMAN? gondola will find as many uses on a model railroad as the prototype did on the great rail lines of America!

The EV Caboose was first introduced to the railroads in the 1950?s, and quickly became, along with the bay window style, the mainstay of modern caboose design. At the forefront of caboose production was the International Car Company of Kenton, Ohio, so naturally, we?ve patterned ours after that impressive original; the traditional gathering place for the train?s crew.

This ATLAS O TRAINMAN? model represents the typical International EV Caboose that was produced for many roads, from the late 1950?s through the 1970?s. We think you?ll find the prototypical details outstanding, and the craftsmanship exceptional! No historically accurate layout is complete without a traditional caboose ? the car that was always last, but never least!

This ATLAS O TRAINMAN? model is based upon the typical RBL class of insulated box cars that were used to carry canned goods that required protection from extremes of temperature, but not refrigeration. These cars had neither ice bunkers nor cooling units.

Plug-style doors were normally used to ensure a tight seal in the insulation. Designed for transport of both perishables and large loads, plug doors allowed box cars to be sealed from outside dust and dirt. These ATLAS O TRAINMAN? units are painstakingly designed to provide many hours of optimum, smooth performance and hours of modeling enjoyment.

During the heyday of rail transport, livestock was routinely shipped in complete trainloads to packing plants throughout the country. The typical stock car was based upon a 40? box car modified with open slat sides and possibly internal decking for the smaller breeds of animals. Designed primarily for transporting cows and pigs, original stock cars date back to the 1860?s, and could carry up to 20,000 pounds of livestock.

Their use became rare by the 1980?s, due to humane, safety and cost concerns. This ATLAS O TRAINMAN? model is a typical reproduction of a once-common freight car style. Resplendent with eye-popping details and engineered for reliability and historical accuracy, the ATLAS O TRAINMAN? 40? Stock Car is a must-have addition to any O Scale layout!
