Walthers 932-16441 HO Scale 63' Budd RPO Seaboard Coast Line SCL
NOS (New Old Stock)
Move mail in style by streamliner! Increasingly aware of their image, many railroads made sure every car on their newest post-war trains was streamlined. And since mail contracts often made passenger service profitable, these all-new Railway Post Office (RPO) cars were a sign of the company's commitment to the Postal Service too. Fully equipped to collect, sort and deliver mail enroute, streamlined RPOs like these were found on many of America's finest trains.
This Walthers model is a fitting tribute to these legendary cars. As the prototypes were modified over time, the models are offered in both As-Built and Amtrak versions with specific details and ends appropriate to the era. Each ready-to-run model is complete with a full interior, flush-fitting windows, wire grab irons, a removable roof with separate details, working diaphragms and a complete underbody featuring diecast GSC Commonwealth trucks with RP-25 metal wheels. Walthers swinging drawbar system is standard equipment on all models to improve operation on small or large curves. Working knuckle couplers and optional horn-hook couplers are also included. Electrical pickups are already installed, which allows easy installation of the snap-in Interior Lighting Kit (#933-1049, sold separately) if desired. For longer trains or a larger fleet of cars, numberboard decals are also provided.
PLEASE NOTE: As these cars are the correct prototype length and feature full underbody detail to match the prototypes, a minimum 24" radius is recommended for operation.
NOTE: NOS (New Old Stock) / USED items are as-is and not returnable. If you have any questions please ask before purchasing.
