As the fastest long distance transportation available, railroads began handling express shipments aboard baggage cars on passenger trains, and as the business grew, developed special express service reefers, boxcars, and milk cars for the job. Like passenger cars, each was equipped with steam and communication lines as well as purpose-built trucks designed especially for handling heavier loads at high-speeds. WalthersProto makes it easy to improve the looks and performance of your fleet with three authentic styles of express car trucks, which saw extensive service through the steam- and early diesel-eras. A quick and easy upgrade for most plastic, brass or scratchbuilt models, each features highly detailed sideframes in authentic colors, along with ultra-smooth rolling metal axles and correct sized wheelsets.
