Got sharp curves? No problem, this 18 foot shorty custom built pulpwood car with loose pulpwood load can handle it. It's ready to run right out of the box. Completely built, weathered, assembled and loaded with narrow gauge character.
This car was built on a Bachmann On30 18 foot freight car platform. It rides on the original trucks, bolsters and frame with the original couplers & mounts. A new pulpwood rack frame was scratch built board by board by hand from real O scale dimension wood lumber boards. We added a single center stirrup step on each side and custom AP (Atlantic Paper) period signage. Note the exceptional nut-bolt-washer detail on the stringer ends at the top of the car. The assembled car performs as well or better than the original with or without the removable load.
The car has several coats of clear matte medium (DullCote) with some acrylic streaking over it, so it will look good (or would that be bad) for many years to come. You will receive the actual model shown in the photos. Items combined if possible and include professional packing and insurance. Background scenery, track & other On30 cars shown for size comparison are NOT included.
