SP NG 28-Foot Boxcar (On3)

The SPNG was where all the leftover equipment from the other SP narrow gauge ended up when they closed down. The SP bought most of their equipment from the Carter  Brothers factory in California. The standard boxcar was 28ft long. They were modernized by the SP so they looked somewhat standardized. After WWII they were renumbered and kept in excellent condition by the Bakersfield shops. Some had openings for Perlite loading. During the last two years, several were rebuilt with top hatches. An internal a-frame floor and low-set side hatches for unloading. They were “narrow gauge covered hoppers” for all practical purposes.

Kits do not include trucks, couplers or detail parts. Can be purchased pre-painted/lettered or not painted and lettered. Also have a choice of road numbers.

The first kit is $45. Kits 2, 3 and 4 are $38.00 each. A 5 pack of kits is $190.00. All kits postage paid.
