HO scale Kadee cushion-underframe 50' Boxcar #2334 with 10' Superior Door
The Society has a supply of the Kadee production run of PS-1 cushioned underframe 50 foot boxcar on which the Society's exclusive series is based. The Kadee production car differs from the Society's run in that it represents car #2334 modified in the early 1970s to be compliant with regulations banning running boards on boxcar roofs, but it retains the high ladders and brake wheel, as many of the 2301 series did until the end of their service lives. It has a 10' Superior door, which many cars received as a replacement for the original Pullman-Standard aluminum doors. Its paint and lettering depicts the cars as they appeared in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The lettering features the block RF&P initials on the left side of the door, and the spelled out "Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac" on the right side of the door. The shop date stencil is Acca 12-79.
