Introduction

Lot 9832 Version 2 – MRL (lions head)

 

Lot 9832 was Pullman’s fourth order for their 5077 cubic-foot single door box cars, built at the Bessemer, Alabama plant 4=6/76. 600 cars were built for American Rail Box Car Company for general service and placed into series RBOX 21000-21599 (class XPF11A). In 1983, 360 cars from RBOX 21000-21359 were transferred to Union Pacific ownership and put into the UP 130800-131159 series, while RBOX 21360-21599 (240 cars) were transferred to UP 130400-130637. In 1997 UP 130800-131151 were transferred to MRL 21457-21599 and to SSAM 41500-41599. During 1998, 55 cars were transferred to MRL 21620-21674 and painted into MRL’s blue livery with the large white “Washington Group” logo with the lions head. 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 2 side sill
  • Pullman’s proprietary 15-panel “bow-tie” roof

This highly detailed replica of Pullman Standard’s 5077 cubic-foot single door box car (Lot 9832) 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.
