Introduction

Golden Tye Kit Car Version 4 – B&O

 

Pickens Railroad purchased a number of kits from both Berwick Forge and Fabricating (BFF) and Pullman Standard to be assembled in Golden Tye’s Pickens, SC shops. 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:

  • 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 5 side sill (no jack pads, Golden Tye rivet placement)
  • Pullman’s proprietary 15-panel “bow-tie” roof
  • Pullman’s N4/5 “sine-wave” corrugated ends (with narrow top corrugation)
  • Pullman’s embossed-panel sliding doors with NRUC logo plate
  • Ellcon-National hand brakes
  • Type 3 stirrup steps
  • Rigid (non-cushioned) underframe
  • Horizontal-lever brake gear
  • Hennessy “Slide-Well” power-assist door opener with type 3 hand wheel
  • NARCorp high performance/low friction 70-ton ASF Ride Control trucks with 33” diameter metal wheels
  • Genuine Kadee #58 semi-scale magnetic couplers in semi-scale coupler boxes
  • Chessie System blue and yellow B&O livery with blank NRUC logo panel on the door and Chessie kitten logo to the right

 

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. North American Railcar is pushing the technology envelope and offering model railroaders cars that they could otherwise never expect to be produced. The Lot 9794 PS 5077 cubic-foot box car is another example.
