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.
This is an accurate replica of a signature paint scheme. For “As Delivered” cars, Union Pacific adopted an unusual lettering arrangement for Union Pacific boxcars, and this repaint version was a simplified version of that paint scheme with accurate letter styles.
