Moloco HO Scale: FGE Plate B Insulated Boxcar - Toledo Peoria & Western  'AX 8-76'

In 1963 Fruit Growers Express at their Alexandria, VA plant started to build a standard car design for the RBL market. Specifically a centered 10-foot wide door opening was central to the insulated boxcar design (specific door opening ranged from 10-1 to 10-2). This popular configuration spread across the most reporting marks of all the FGE catalogued items. FGE purchased their underframes already pre-assembled by fabricators Berwick in PA they were shipped to the Alexandria plant to be rivet assembled. The entire boxcar was riveted together from the bottom up, in the 7+7 R pattern. These were insulated (foamed-in-place), had proven 20-inch cushioned underframe, Hydra-Cushion and Large Weldment Draft Key. Many types and configurations and combinations of loaders were used as per customer specifications.

TP&W assigned these cars to their Agent in East Peoria, ILL.
