Re: Atlas N-scale UP PS1 boxcar
My thanks also to Ben, Ed and Tim for this info. I've hesitated purchasing several of these Atlas cars being uncertain if they'd be appropriate to my 1953 era railroad. Now with this spreadsheet, I'll have the correct information! Thanks again!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Is the recent Atlas 40-foot PS1 boxcar with 8@ door correct for Union Pacific? http://www.atlasrr.com/NFreight/n40ps1boxcar2.htm The Atlas picture shows a build date of 4-37, which is too old for a PS1. It looks a nice model but is expensive, so I cannot afford to buy, regret and try to resell it." The answer is online at http://www.steamerafreightcars.com/prototype/frtcars/PullmanStandard40ftPS1boxcars.xls in the PS-1 spreadsheet compiled by Ed Hawkins. This model is closest to UP 126000-126274.� You're correct that Atlas botched the built date - it should be 9-57.
