To celebrate this significant milestone, the Kalmbach Hobby Store commissioned Kadee Quality Products Co. to produce this limited-edition HO scale Pullman-Standard 40-foot PS-1 boxcar.  Proudly display this collectible commemorative model in your home or add it to your layout.


The ready-to-run model, produced in the United States of America, has the reporting marks of the Milwaukee, Racine & Troy, Kalmbach Media’s HO scale employee layout. Features on the injection-molded plastic body include positionable 6-foot doors; separate, factory-applied ladders and grab irons; a see-through brakewheel platform and running board; and a brake wheel, brakewheel housing, and retainer valve. 


The model has a die-cast metal underbody with floor board and stringer detail. The Kadee scale couplers are body mounted in plastic draft-gear boxes. The center sills, cross bearers, and cross members are a single plastic casting. The detailed brake system includes an air reservoir, brake cylinder, and control valve; related pipes, levers, and support brackets; and air hoses. The stirrup steps are freestanding plastic parts. 


The boxcar has two-piece, fully equalized High Gravity Compound trucks with self-centering action. The trucks are fitted with 33” non-magnetic, RP-25 contour smooth-back metal wheels mounted on plastic axles. The model is packed a clear plastic case, great for displaying and safe storage. 


The Trains magazine HO scale Pullman-Standard 40-foot PS-1 boxcar is offered in one road number. Order today to add this one-time offering to your freight car collection.
