RI express box cars

Technically I guess they are 1937 AAR standard, but they were
built to the 1940 10'6" standard height. Rock Island never had
any of the 10'0" cars. Just thought I'd mention that before
Shawn rushes out and buys the wrong kit...


RI 20000-20049, 50 1937 AAR 40 ft boxcars built in 1941 equipped for
Express service, painted Pullman green with gold lettering, with
the "Route of the Rockets" slogan and red-background herald.

Shawn's too busy buying mill gons and flatcars to rush out
and buy much of anything else right now. Besides, we don't
need no stinking express boxcars on our railroad ;-) .
