It’s time for another prototype review 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 a couple of months ago. Ray Breyer has another summary covering prototype cars for each of the introductory models that will have fishbelly center sills and wood ends. Ray estimates there were more than 40,000 box cars with these features built to similar designs. The initial PDF data sheet is posted on a special blog page, Accurail Prototype Data.
One last data sheet is in the works to cover the remaining prototypes Accurail has announced for their 36-foot box car models. That will be posted this summer as the release date draws near for these new models.
