Description

Rivarossi HO-Scale NYC 60' NYC RPO



Hornby # HR 4204
Road Number 4820


The Railway Post Office during its peak was featured on over 9,000 railroad routes throughout North America delivering mail at a more efficient rate than ever seen before.  Armed Post Office employees sorted mail as they traveled.

These Rivarossi RPOs also feature the iconic catching arm that was used in smaller towns for mail in canvas or leather bags to be delivered on board without the train ever stopping. The RPO and Combine have upgraded tooling and this is the first run in over 15 years.

From Boston and New York, to Canada and all the way to Chicago, New York Central Railroad covered a lot of the Northeastern railroad territory supplying passenger commuter trains as well as passenger cars for long distant travel.  Check your personal collection of NYC books.  You will find combines at the head end of many long distance passenger trains.  They were also used on NYC's many Mail and Express (M&E) trains [not shown on passenger timetables].  On M&E trains, RPO's often had a 60' baggage car on one or both sides.  Unsorted mail was placed in one car, sorted in the RPO, with the processed mail bags going back into a baggage car.

Pullman was one of the most prestigious names when it came to the railroad during the boom of train travel, producing a wide range of 60 ft cars for various railroad needs.

These HO scale cars can run on a radius as small as 18 inches allowing their use on compact layouts.  All have updated tooling and feature knuckle couplers and factory installed grab irons.  These   detailed cars have metal wheels for lighting* the complete interiors.
*Lighting Kits not available through Rivarossi.

Modeler's suggestion - add some weight to these cars if you can.  It will add reliability to your switching (shoving) moves.

Features:

Pullman Green with Yellow Dulux Lettering (yes, you read that correctly, yellow lettering - please ignore the white lettering in our image)

  • Knuckle Couplers 

  • Complete Interiors 

  • Factory Installed grabirons 

  • Metal Wheels


This model is of an RPO never owned by the NYCS.  The NYC version was a 61' car.  Several features are not


prototypical but we are offering it as a stand-
in model.




This is a drawing of a NYC 61' RPO.



MSRP $29.95       NYCSHS Members Price $25.49 and that is 15% off MSRP.


Shipping is extra and Ohio residents must add 8% Ohio sales tax.
