Pullman Standard built 500 of their original 5077 cubic-foot, plate B, single door box cars at their Bessemer, Alabama plant during October 1972 (Lot 9602) for Penn Central in series PC 168000-168499 (PC class X-75). Some of these cars were later transferred to Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) and were repainted red with their beaver logo and stacked block “Canadian Pacific Railway” to the left of the door for pulp and paper service. These cars were modified for pulp and paper service by raising the roof, adding a taller (plate C) door, adding vents along the roof and floor lines on both side of the door, increasing the capacity from 70 to 100-tons and replacing the original 70-ton trucks with 100-ton versions. Other features on this modified version of Lot 9602 include:
This highly detailed replica of a modified Pullman Standard 5077 cubic-foot single door box car (Lot 9602) has been meticulously researched and designed and produced in plastic with accurate details in plastic, wire and etched metal. North American Railcar is pushing the technology envelope and offering model railroaders cars that they could otherwise never expect to be produced. The Lot 9602 PS 5077 cubic-foot box car is another example.
