Product Information

The WalthersMainline HO Scale 40' Association of American Railroads (AAR) 1948 Boxcar is based on cars used across the continent from 1948 into the 1980s. Eager to replace equipment worn out by the Depression and WWII traffic, railroads big and small began updating their postwar boxcar fleets with cars based on the AAR standard design introduced in 1948. Although similar to the 1944 standard, notable changes included the addition of a rectangular rib at the top of each end, and many buyers opted for diagonal panel roofs. Introduced as railroads also began freshening their image, these cars wore bold, colorful paint and lettering schemes over their long careers, with some still rolling strong into the 1980s! Perfect for your late steam and classic diesel-era freight consists, these detailed AAR 1948 40' Boxcar models are part of the broad selection of WalthersMainline HO Scale 40' Boxcars.
