Our newest HO Kit release is the #12400 Series USRA DS Express Box for Northwestern Pacific. These 22 Express service cars were rebuilt from the 100 USRA DS box cars allocated to the NWP in 1919. The cars were originally rebuilt into express service in 1939 (Westerfield Kit #3818) but the service was discontinued during WWII. In April, 1949, the cars were rebuilt with passenger steam, signal and air lines, and passenger style low uncoupling levers and retainer. They were repainted with the famous "Redwood Empire Route Overnight" lettering. These cars were painted SP Dark Olive Green with black roof, underframe and trucks.
Our #12400 Series ONE-PIECE BODY Kits cover the 1949 version of the Express Service box car with NWP’s "Redwood Empire Route Overnight" lettering scheme as well as passenger style steam and signal lines. This colorful lettering is accurately reproduced with our multi-color decal set.
Our unpainted HO Kits include detail parts appropriate for the NWP Express Service version, including the following details:
Improved Cast Urethane One-Piece Body Construction with Fine Details.
Urethane Castings of detail parts, including many car specific parts.
Plastic Steam, air and signal hoses.
