PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:
It was the mid 1970s, and the incentive per diem box car boom was just beginning. New, brightly painted box cars seemed to appear overnight. Many were lettered for various short lines. Pullman Standard (PS) was a significant builder of many of these cars. The 50ft outside post, non-terminating end box car, became the foundation for new per diem cars built in the 1970s. The 50ft PS cars also varied in door configuration and style to better suit each customer.

Today box cars still matter to the railroads. Even with modern containerization, box cars have a higher capacity then allowable on US roads. We are finding today, that 1970s box cars are being rebuilt and put into service for various leasing outfits. These models can still be seen today in the modern railroading scene.
