Moloco HO Scale: FGE Plate B RBL - Undecorated Kit

Plate B • 10-2 Centered Plug Doors

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 a proven 20-inch cushioned underframe (Keystone, Hydra-Cushion and Freight-Saver), many types and configurations and combinations of loaders were used as per customer specifications. Many were leased and then re-leased a few times more, passing from one set of reporting marks to others.
