In 1974 and with production lot #9749, Pullman-Standard's Bessemer, Alabama plant began the manufacture the 7315 cubic capacity “waffle” boxcar for the Norfolk and Western Railway. Production continued with additional deliveries to the Santa Fe, Milwaukee Road, Union Pacific and Detroit, Toledo and Ironton. As seen with our August 13th blog post, 'A Rare Prototype', the P-S Waffle Boxcar continues to serve Class I railroads to the present.
Available in the company’s striking Indian red paint scheme. The ATSF P-S 7315 “waffle” boxcar features exceptionally accurate artwork from the carefully crafted roman lettering style of the capacity data block to the circle cross logo—printed with amazing clarity over the ribs and waffles of the car side.
