Norfolk & Western 86' auto parts boxcar # 355107
Norfolk & Western adopted this black paint scheme with the conjoined NW logo in 1971. N&W’s place in the auto parts network was primarily the result of their 1964 lease of Wabash which ran from plants in Buffalo, across southern Ontario, Michigan and west to Chicago, St.Louis and Kansas City. Note the second two road numbers in this run have the NW logo, numbers and data placed higher and to the left when compared to the first road number.
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.
