Ray Breyer is back with a fourth and final prototype summary for the upcoming Accurail HO scale 36-foot box car models. Four variations of the model are planned. Initial paint and lettering schemes were announced earlier this year. Ray estimates there were more than 40,000 box cars with these features built to similar designs. The PDF data sheet is posted on a special blog page, Accurail Prototype Data. Click on the link for the 1800 series for Ray’s latest summary.

Accurail has posted the introductory roadnames for their 36-foot box car models on their website under the specific kit series numbers; 1300, 1400, 1700, and 1800. The links for these are near the bottom of their main webpage. These models are scheduled for late summer 2016 release, as per notes on each of those product pages.

    I wrote a couple articles for CP Tracks on similar “as built” and “converted” cars for Canadian Pacific. There was also an article published in “Canadian Railway and Marine World” when these cars were built new in company shops in 1928/29. I would like to share my research.
