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.
Featuring refined artwork with exceptional attention to accuracy—with accurate lot numbers the builder’s logo and the nuanced end-of-car lettering. The Milwaukee Road purchased five P-S 7315 “Waffle” Boxcars for the auto parts pool, and these were painted in the Milwaukee’s beautiful Federal Yellow paint scheme.
