Single Door (6’ wide) Box
Model Manufacturer and Description (HO Scale only):
Intermountain offers a prototypically current model of the GN 40' long, 10'
high, 12 side panel car. This model is accurate for the above GN car series as
listed by the car numbers. Or, another way of looking at it is that the GN
operated 3,500 cars of this single prototype from 1948 until the demise of the
road in 1970. There were several different paint schemes applied to this car and
my book provides numerous photographs of different paint schemes in each series.
C&BT Shops - 1/3/4 Dreadnaught end, 12 panel box - 10' 6" interior
height car. Several years ago C&BT shops released a 40' long, 10'6"
high, 12 side panel box car model that matches cars in series 20500 to 21449.
Basic Modeling Notes:
The cars had either Camel (basically a Youngstown type door) or Superior doors
depending on car series or individual cars. Add a Superior door and a 3/3
dreadnaught end for a 2525-2549 on the "Loader Scheme" cars page 13.
