Re: Reservations Needed: PRR X29 Boxcar (HO Scale)

The capacity information on both cars is metric (KGS).  Without doing the math they sure look like X29 cars.  5547 has a build date of 4-25 and 5598 build date 4-23 that CHP could have wrong.  There are other type cars between the two numbers so the series in not all X29 cars.

Matt,

If the capacity information given with the second photos is correct, 3879 cubic feet, CHP 5598 cannot be an X29. X29s had a capacity of 3034 cubic feet. That is even bigger than the X28's 3278 cubic feet.

Yours Aye,
