Lot 9962 Version 1 – NSL

 

Lot 9962 was Pullman’s fifth order for their 5077 cubic-foot single door box cars, built at the Bessemer, Alabama plant 9=10/77 and 4/78. 300 cars were built for The National Railway Utilization Corporation (NRUC) for general service and placed into series NSL 101600-101899.

  • Type 2 body with 10 side posts (5 on each side of the 10-foot centered door) with all 10 side posts being fabricated from hat-section channels
  • Type 2 side sill
  • Stanray 15-panel “diagonal panel” roof
  • Pullman’s 5/5 “sine-wave” corrugated ends
  • YSD 5/6/6 sliding doors with separate NRUC logo panels
