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.

Beginning in the 1960’s, covered hoppers took over 40' boxcars for grain service. The Pullman Standard 4427 cubic foot low-side covered hopper is one of the legendary cars that helped make this transition successful. Graced with many colorful paint schemes and plying the rails through all corners of North America, these cars carried numerous dry commodities including grain, corn, wheat, flour and many other forms of dry bulks. The Pullman Standard 4427 low-hip covered hopper is a classic of North American railroading!
