The City of Los Angeles handled a large volume of storage mail during the winter months, often in newer baggage cars from the 5631-5663 series. Ordered from American Car & Foundry in 1953, these 85' streamliners were unique in that they rode on six-wheel trucks to handle a bigger load. All cars were built to plan #767570, but were constructed in two lots, with eight cars in Lot #3810 featuring nine roof vents, while the 25 cars built in lot #4094 had a single large vent. After 1967, most were reassigned to work train service.
 
Based on cars from lot #4094, these models are finished in UP's classic Armour Yellow, Harbor Mist Gray and red, and feature a facotyr-rpinted number. Superb details inside and out include new black window gaskets for the first time, factory-installed grab irons, correct trucks, and modeler-installed extended drawbars for 22" radius curves.
 
PLEASE NOTE: As these cars are the correct prototype length and feature full underbody detail to match the prototypes, a minimum 24" radius is recommended for operation.
