Inspired by a local BNSF tool car made out of an old steel 40 foot boxcar with a new window cut into the sliding door and an extra door cut into one side of the car, this brightly colored 18 foot shorty custom built MOW Tool Boxcar is ready to run right out of the box. Completely built, weathered, assembled and loaded with narrow gauge character.
The car was built on a Bachmann On30 18 foot Boxcar platform. It rides on the original trucks, bolsters and frame with the original couplers & mounts. Just like the prototype, we added 2 windows - one cut into the sliding door on one side, and a side entry door on one side. The assembled car performs as well or better than the original and both sliding doors slide open and closed (even the door with a window in it).
The car has several coats of clear acrylic weathering, 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 and track are NOT included.
