Re: Athearn Pulpwod Car

There is a scan online of the builder photo of KCS #24000. I'm
not sure where I got it -- Fallen Flags or RPI -- but it's from
the Car Builder's Cyc of that era. According to my notes the IL
is 50'0".

Athearn produced a metal pulpwood car during the mid 1950's. Produced in one road name only - Kansas City Southern in only one documented car number - 24010. All- metal car with die cast bulkhead ends. Originals had sprung metal trucks and dummy knuckle couplers. Catalog number was A-607.

Subject: [STMFC] Athearn Pulpwod Car

I am not sure if this is the proper list but because the car is metal I would think it is an older car. I have a chance to buy an Athearn metal 53' pulpwood car ($15). I have never heard of this car. The only pulpwood car I know they made is a 40' plastic model.

Can anyone be of help? The man is reputable but cannot scan a photo and time is a factor.
