  1. Alan

    These 60′ boxcars were first introduced by American Car and Foundry in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    Although they were probably also used for other types of traffic, these boxcars were most famously remembered for transporting autoparts and were often used in conjunction with their more massive brethren, the 86ft hi-cube boxcars. While their 86ft “cousins” were used to handle smaller, lighter parts such as doors, fenders, fuel tanks, and tires, these smaller, sturdier 60′ boxcars were used for larger, heavier items, primarily engine blocks.

    I model the Southern Pacific during 1965 to the late 1970s and some of their historic trains I like to run on my routes include their famous mixed autos and auto parts unit trains that used to flood westward from East Coast factories.

    I’m so happy that someone has finally released such high-end models of these boxcars. I love these models to death because I now have accurate, prototypical boxcars I can use to add variety to my consists and to offer a nice contrast to the long strings of 86ft Hi-cubes and open autoracks commonly associated with these type of vintage unit trains.

    These 60ft boxcars were first introduced by American Car and Foundry during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Although they were possibly also used for other types of traffic, these boxcars are most famous for their role in transporting autoparts alongside their fellow brethren, the 86ft Hi-cube boxcars.

    Commonly used in conjunction with their 86ft cousins, the larger Hi-cubes were used to handle smaller, lighter parts like doors, fuel tanks, and tires while these smaller, sturdier 60ft boxcars took care of heavier, bulkier car parts, primarily automobile engine blocks.

    I model the Southern Pacific during 1965 to the late ’70s and some of their historic trains I like to run on my routes are their famous unit automobile and auto parts trains that used to flood westward from East Coast factories.

    These boxcars are absolutely superb. I really enjoy mixing them into my consists to break up the long, monotonous strings of 86′ Hicubes and autoracks, and I appreciate the variety and contrast they add to my vintage unit auto trains. I’m so glad someone has finally created and contributed such high-end models to the Trainz community for old-school modelers like me.
