Broadway Limited NYC 40' Steel Boxcars with 7-8 Corrugated Ends are based on widely used cars delivered into WWI. Shortly before World War I, the NYC and PRR pioneered the construction of all-steel boxcars with steel sheathing. In 1922, the NYC began delivering their NYC Specification 486 steel boxcar. These became the second most populous steel boxcars on Americas railroads, second only to the PRR X29 cars. From the 1920s through the late 1950s, these cars could be found everywhere on the New York Central system, as well as traveling in interchange almost everywhere in North America. Variations in design over the decades were relatively few, and these detailed models represent these cars as most of them appeared in the late 1940s and 50s. Features include rectangular-paneled roofs, corrugated doors, AB brakes, ARA U-section trucks, and a steel-grid running board along the top of the car. N Scale NYC 40' Steel Boxcars are offered in two versions: with 7-8 corrugated ends and with Dreadnaught ends.
