The Pullman-Standard 70 ton, 5277 cubic foot waffle box car is a true Signature classic! With delivery beginning in 1974, the Southern Railway purchased nearly 5,000 of these cars. Since that time, the P-S waffle found its way into secondary ownership with other railroads. ExactRail now offers our most sought after freight car in new, contemporary paint schemes!

Reminiscent of their Southern heritage, ExactRail offers Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern and Southern Indiana Railway waffles in patched ex-Southern paint. Additionally, ExactRail replicates the unique modifications to Buffalo & Pittsburgh cars by including simulated side vents.

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. ExactRail's Signature Series Southern 50' Waffle Box Car is an exclusive replica to be appreciated by all enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Hawker-Siddeley was a group of British engineering and manufacturing firms whose interests had historically been in aviation. There, Hawker-Siddeley manufactured the WWII era Hawker Hurricane, and their founder, Tommy Sopwith, developed the early Sopwith Camel. After World War II, Hawker-Siddeley diversified into the domain of railroads by way of subsidiaries like Hawker-Siddeley Canada and Westinghouse Brake and Signals. Throughout the 70s and 80s, Hawker-Siddeley Canada produced numerous freight cars, including the Hawker-Siddeley CP Rail 65' gondola.

CP Rail rostered 115 Hawker-Siddeley built gondolas. In addition to these cars, the CP Rail also had 100 Marine Industry Limited (MIL) built gondolas. These cars are virtually identical to the Hawker-Siddeley built cars.

ExactRail is pleased to have tooled the first ever Hawker-Siddeley 65' gondola! With the finest micro-tooling in the industry, ExactRail's Hawker-Siddeley CP Rail 65' gondola accurately captures the essence of this railroad-unique freight car. The Signature Series affirms ExactRail's love for the freight car, and it demonstrates that with ExactRail's Signature Series any model is possible!

Thank you for your business and happy railroading!

Sincerely,

John Pestana – Co-Founder
