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 1971 paint scheme. The N&W P-S 7315 “waffle” boxcar features exceptionally accurate artwork that has been refined over our first release. The extended draft gear is painted in yellow, which is both prototypically accurate and absolutely stunning against the black and white, Norfolk & Western paint scheme.
