Product Type:Craftsman Kit
40-foot, 50-ton box car kit composed of resin castings for all of the parts. No trucks or couplers were provided. C-D-S dry transfers were used to give a 1950s style of lettering. This model was modified by removing the incorrect fishbelly center sill to look more like the Duryea Cushion underframe these used. And some other details were upgraded. S-Helper Service trucks and Kadee S #802 couplers were used.

Road Name:Baltimore & Ohio (B&O)
Prototype Class:M-26a
Product Type:Craftsman Kit
The prototype for this car was similar to the Pennsylvania Railroad's X29 (and the S Scale America model released in 2013). However, these kits used paper printed sides and roofs, with a printed running board. The two ends were printed in box-car-red and had white lettering. The corrugated doors were printed as well and were part of the side image. There was also an Ajax brake wheel that you could cut out and paste on one of the ends. This is all to be folded and placed upon a wood box they tell you how to make from the sizes of wood they may have supplied in the kit.
