General Steel Castings 60-Ton Well Car

General Steel Castings offered a 60-ton well car in its product line of one piece cast steel car bodies in 1958.  The buyer railroads purchased the components and assembled the cars in their own shops.

The body and detail parts are injection molded plastic, while the well and underframe are diecast.  Intricate and accurate detail includes a free-standing vertical brakewheel.  These cars ride at the prototypically-correct height, with the well a mere ten scale inches above the rails.  The model rides on Atlas' Barber S-2 friction-bearing truck frames fitted with Fox Valley Models 28" low-profile wheelsets, and features body-mounted Micro-Trains® #2001/2004 couplers.

Operation of this model over curved trackage of less than 10-inch radius is not recommended.

Department of Defense

Built by General Steel in November 1972, these cars were used to transport steam generators for the Department of Defense.
