Description
Rapido HO-Scale NYC USRA 40' Double-Sheathed Wood Boxcar

(Pre-Order)


During World War I the US railroads were struggling to keep up with wartime traffic, in part because of a shortage of serviceable freight cars. In an attempt to solve this problem, President Wilson nationalized the railroads under the United States Railway Administration, or USRA. One of the first tasks assigned to the USRA was to develop common designs for new freight cars. Among these was a 40' double-sheathed wood boxcar with a fishbelly steel underframe.

Starting in 1918, nearly 25,000 copies of the double-sheathed boxcar were built and delivered to 24 railroads throughout the country. The cars were well received, and many cars continued in regular service into the 1950s with many updated to the newer AB-brake system. Our models feature either K or AB brakes as appropriate to each paint scheme.

Features:

  • Accurate new tooling
  • Correct details including roof and handbrake
  • KC or AB brakes as appropriate
  • Full underbody with separate brake rods and piping
  • Separate grab irons installed at the factory
  • USRA Andrews trucks with in-line brake shoes
  • Factory installed Macdonald-Cartier coupler
  • Blackened turned-metal wheels
