With see-through roof walks, grab irons, and other separately added parts, this model is a detailed replica of the Pullman-Standard PS-1 boxcar. Pullman had been making freight cars for more than half a century when it hit a home run with the PS-1. Introduced in 1947, it set the standard for postwar American freight cars. What made the PS-1 a landmark was its welded construction - an area in which Pullman led the industry. In addition to lighter weight, welding offered superior strength and better resistance to weather and corrosion than contemporary riveted cars.

Like the EMD diesels that became ubiquitous on American railroads, the PS-1 was part of the postwar shift away from customized, railroad-specific locos and cars toward standardized designs produced in large quantities on efficient assembly lines. No wonder the PS-1 was soon followed by the highly successful PS-2 covered hopper, PS-3 open hopper, PS-4 flatcar, and PS-5 gondola.

At last 1:32 modelers can enjoy detailed scale rolling stock built to last and available at affordable prices. We've heard the clamoring for this type of equipment and RailKing One-Gauge is proud to deliver. As always, M.T.H. works hard to satisfy the needs of our customers and we're confident that you'll find the value in our rolling stock to be unmatched by others and worthy additions to your one gauge roster.

Each car's standard features are often extras on other manufacturer's cars. Only M.T.H. gives you stainless steel wheels and axles, two types of couplers and polycarbonate bodies for indoor and outdoor use as standard equipment.
