CP Rail 86' auto parts boxcar #205945
Canadian Pacific took delivery of these cars in 1967 in a rather somber boxcar red without logos (possibly due to a short term lease arrangement.) They were intended for cross-border auto parts traffic and carried CPAA reporting marks. This traffic proved to be long-term and with the lease arrangements updated, the fleet began to receive Action Red paint and the CP Rail name.
Bluford Shops is introducing a new run of our N scale Pullman Standard 86’ Double Door Auto Parts Boxcars. This new set of releases feature a new draft gear design that accommodates 1015 and compatible couplers (included,) our latest 70 ton roller bearing trucks and metal wheels. The minimum radius is 11” (note the old “lift kit” for even tighter curves has been discontinued.) They also include separate wire grab irons and etched metal platforms on the ends. The draft gear is mounted to the body but has a spring centered swing action that both resists string-lining the train pulling through curves and resists the trucks climbing the rail during shoving moves.
