In 1974, Southern took delivery of 70 ton, 5277 cubic foot box cars from Pullman-Standard. Different from other cars of the IPD era, the Southern cars had a full set of "waffles"--stamped impressions into the car's side panels intended to accommodate lading equipment. Beginning with PS lot 9725, Southern Railway would eventually roster nearly 5,000 of these box cars. Found anywhere, the Southern PS 50' Waffle box car is the epitome of a signature classic!
By way of the Signature series, ExactRail offers authentic replicas of railroad-unique prototypes. Featuring the finest precision micro-tooling and finish-work in the industry, ExactRail's Southern 50' Waffle box car is a platinum quality model—complete with Kadee #58 couplers, coupler cut levers, numerous wire-formed and fine-scale details, accurate underbody details and ExactRail's exclusive equalized trucks. Distinguished by the prototype, ExactRail's Signature Series Southern 50' Waffle Box Car is an exclusive replica to be appreciated by all enthusiasts and collectors alike.
Thank you for your business and happy railroading!
