Grand Trunk Western (version 2) 86' auto parts boxcar #126439
Linking the many automobile plants in southeastern Michigan with Chicago, Grand Trunk Western relied heavily on these giant boxcars. The GT logo would have struck a familiar chord with the railroad’s auto producer customers. For this second version paint scheme, GTW dispensed with “The Good Track Road” motto adopted years earlier as a not-so-subtle dig at Penn Central.
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.
