North Carolina State Car
  Road Number NC 1789
This 40’ standard box car with plug door representing the state of North Carolina is car #4 of a 50-car series for each of the 50 states in the union. It is painted dark blue with aluminum sides and sports the dogwood and the cardinal, North Carolina’s official flower and bird. The flag of the state of North Carolina is in the background. The road number 1789 is the year North Carolina was admitted to the Union. P/N #21350

Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe

Road Number ATSF 180806
This 33’ twin bay hopper with offset sides is painted box car red and lettered in white with black and white logo. General American Tank Car Company built this 100,000 lb capacity hopper in March 1941. Though the heavy traffic demands of World War II postponed the retirement or rebuilding of many obsolete wood and composite freight cars, these older cars disappeared rapidly as soon as the war ended, and rebuilding projects resumed on a large scale. Many new all-steel cars began to arrive beginning in 1945, and in the late 1940s the Santa Fe augmented the efforts of the commercial car builders by building some new equipment in its own car shops.

Road Number CB&Q 30034

This 40’ Standard box car with single Youngstown door is painted Pullman Green and lettered in white on the sides and ends. It sports the white ‘Way of the Zephyrs’ on one side and ‘Everywhere West’ on the other. It was built in December 1940 by CB&Q’s Havelock shops in Nebraska. It runs on black Allied Full Cushion trucks. One hundred fifty of the first XM-32 Express box cars were given high speed Allied Full Cushion trucks and painted Pullman Green instead of the standard mineral red, identifying them for express service. A shortage of steel halted production of the ‘early’XM-32s in 1942.
