Between 5 & 7/76, Golden Tye (GT) assembled 81 kits and put them into the PICK 55500-55580 series. In 1985, Chessie System took possession of 30 of those 1976-built kit cars, refurbished them and placed them in the B&O 401170-401199 series. Features include:
This highly detailed replica of Pullman Standard’s 5077 cubic-foot single door box car (Lot 9831) has been meticulously researched and designed and produced in plastic with accurate details in plastic, wire and etched metal.
