One of the first successful steel gondolas, this was a catalogue offering from the Pressed Steel Car Company introduced in 1901. 100 were delivered to the Rio Grande Western, 500 to the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie, and 500 to the Pittsburgh, McKeesport and Youghiogheny. They survived multiple mergers and were retired in the late 1940s on the Denver and Rio Grande Western. On the New York Central family roads, they lasted until about 1925. A small number may have been in use as late as 1929. We offer 11 versions of this car, with or without safety appliances. Inspect the diagrams closely before making a decision. Detail parts are slightly oversized in the renderings to make them easier to see. Details in this kit are standard parts supplied by Tichy Train Group. This kit features a one-piece Westinghouse Split-K brake system as a part of the body to keep costs low and decrease build time. This brake system can be easily removed and replaced by the user if he or she desires more detail. The kit is bundled with our HO-7004 series Pressed Steel Diamond Arch Bar Trucks. The kit comes with full instructions and historical documentation.
