This highly detailed replica of Pullman Standard’s 5077 cubic-foot single door box car (Lot 9602) has been meticulously researched and designed and produced in plastic with accurate details. North American Railcar is pushing the technology envelope and offering model railroaders cars that they could otherwise never expect to be produced.
