Produced as the PRR X33, these models built by Ajin Precision Mfg, Seoul, Korea, came painted but unlettered. This was due to the fact that there are a number of different lettering schemes that could be applied to these PRR cars. The main photo shows Bill's model being lettered for the PRR X33a class in the post-1954 shadow-keystone scheme. The second photo is by Bob Werre of his model, which is lettered for the earlier circle-keystone scheme. The Detroit Toledo & Ironton railroad also used this box car design, copied from the PRR's, and sold some of them to the Northern Pacific after WWII.
