FMC 5277 "Combo Door" Boxcar : ABOX : As Delivered - 11 Panel Roof

In May and June of 1978, the American Rail Box Car Company (Railbox) sought a unique design of 70-ton Plate C boxcars from FMC. These cars had a 6' plug doors in addition to the regular 10' Youngstown slider. These "Combo Door" ABOX boxcars have since became one of the recognizable boxcars from the late 1970s to the present. Through October 1984 to July 1985, the Canadian National acquired nearly 1,000 of the original ABOX FMC 5277 “Combo Door” boxcars. Some cars were completely repainted Tuscan Red by CN's Moncton, N.B. shops. Others bore the original ABOX paint scheme with re-stenciled reporting marks for the Canadian National (CNA), and ExactRail is offering both paint schemes! ExactRail is pleased to offer the FMC 5277 “Combo Door” boxcar with all-new road numbers. Accurately rendered, ExactRail goes the distance by offering two versions of Stanray X-panel non-overhanging roofs (an 11 panel and 9 panel) to match the different roofs of the prototypes.

Railbox (ABOX) 1978 “As Delivered” paint scheme:

These boxcars are from the #51000 – 51950 series and have an 11-panel Stanray roof. ExactRail HO scale replica features exceptionally accurate artwork from the stencil breaks in the capacity data to the meticulously matched paint colors.
