Photo: Rutland Boxcar (1956) (Added: Also New MEC PS-1)
The car in the photo, Rutland 378, was one of 101 PS-1 box cars, series 300-399 & one replacement car no. 223, built 8-56 in P-S lot 8300 at the Pullman-Standard Michigan City plant. Each car came with 8’ door openings & Pullman doors, Universal hand brake, Apex Tri-lok running boards & brake step, and A-3 Ride Control trucks.
Approximately 22 years ago Kadee offered an accurate model of this exact car number (Kadee #5119). More recently about 5 years ago was Rutland 345 from the same series (Kadee #5256). Both are discontinued, i.e.; sold out at Kadee.
On an unrelated mention, the Kadee web site is showing the release of 40’-6” PS-1 box car MEC 6730, series 6500-6749, built 10-47, P-S lot 5877. It’s one of just 8 lot numbers of the early 40’-6” PS-1 box cars having the Pullman welded roof, 6 lots of which match-up to available Kadee car bodies with either 6’ or 7’ door openings & 10-panel welded sides. The two other lots came with 12-panel welded sides.
