Moloco Trains HO Scale: Topeka Built BX-97 50' XMLI 10' Offset Door - ATSF '12-65'

In 1965 the Santa Fe Topeka Shops started to build one of their most successful insulated boxcar designs, mechanical code XMLI. They manufactured 1450 cars up to 1967 over three series of cars, the Bx-94, Bx-97 and Bx-114 series. These CADILLAC of boxcars, include all types of features that garner the highest class of service. They were insulated, had Side-wall Fillers, Load Dividers and Removeable Bars & Gates depending on individual car numbers. All had the famous Super SHOCK CONTROL cushioned underframe. The design adherence to the Plate B clearance standard translated to unlimited service to all rail lines in the USA, Canada and Mexico. They lasted in service well into the BNSF era beyond 1995.
