Micro-Trains N Scale: 50’ Boxcar - Chesapeake & Ohio
This 50’ box car with Barber Roller Bearing trucks was built in the mid-1960s for Chesapeake & Ohio, later becoming Chessie System in the early 1970s. It was painted in a unique trial scheme, with a yellow body, blue door, and orange door bars. Chessie System was formed through the 1972 mergers of Chesapeake & Ohio, Baltimore & Ohio, and Western Maryland. It was one of the largest Class 1 railroads until 1986 when Seaboard System merged with Chessie to form CSX Transportation.
