210801

Santa Fe Maxi III Set 1 #210801, Set 2 #210811 $94.95 each

Santa Fe may have been a late comer to double stack technology, but once they got started, they quickly became a major factor.  These Santa Fe cars are numbered SFLC for their Santa Fe Leasing Co. subsidiary, likely for tax and financing reasons. This fleet continues in operation today for BNSF.

73201

Wabash 2 Bay Covered Hopper #73201 Single $15.55, #73203 3-Pack $46.65

America's railroads developed into eastern or western lines on either side of the Mississippi River from Chicago to New Orleans. For the most part, the big railroads stayed on their own side. Wabash was both an eastern and western line. In the west they served Omaha, NE; Des Moines, IA; and Kansas City, MO. Along the river they served Chicago, Decatur, IL; and St. Louis, MO. In the east they served Fort Wayne, IN; Toledo, OH; Detroit, MI and finally Buffalo, NY! Wabash combined with NKP, P&WV and N&W in 1964.

143401

Pennsylvania "Circle Keystone" 40' Box Car #143401 Single $20.50, #143402 2-Pack $41.00

When Pennsylvania Railroad took delivery of these X-43a box cars in 1950, the "Circle Keystone" paint scheme still held sway over the fleet. A couple of years later, the "Shadow Keystone" logo would be implemented yet thousands of "circle" cars would survive the Penn Central merger in 1968 and continue to serve Pennsy's star-crossed successor. Their fleet was so massive that one would be hard pressed to find a mixed freight train anywhere in the country that didn't have a Pennsy car or two in the consist.

143201

Illinois Central "Main Line of Mid-America" 40' Box Car #143201 Single $19.95, #143202 2-Pack $39.90

First appearing in 1948, these Illinois Central box cars have the original "Main Line of Mid-America" logo. This logo would be the company standard until the introduction of the "split rail" logo in 1967. IC and successor ICG have not been known to be quick on the draw with the paint gun and cars with this logo could be seen in revenue service in the 1980s. IC served 14 states and rostered approximately 60,000 freight cars.
