Eastern Seaboard Models: N Scale U.S. Railway Equipment 50' Boxcar, Class X72 - Penn Central

These cars were built by U.S. Railway Equipment Company in 1972 and 1973 primarily for the Penn Central under lease agreement. Western Pacific also leased a group of cars.

The body and underframe are injection molded plastic, with etched brass end platforms. Intricate and accurate detail is present throughout. The model rides at the prototypically-correct height above the rails, on ASF 70-ton Ride Control roller-bearing trucks fitted with low-profile metal wheelsets and Keystone cushioned underframe. Simulated cushioned-underframe coupler pockets are integrated into the underframe. The model is equipped with Micro-Trains compatible knuckle couplers.
