Micro-Trains plans a September delivery for a three-pack set of Union Pacific boxcar models. The boxcar will be based on a National Steel Car prototype for a contemporary 60-foot double-door, exterior-post freight car with excess height or “Plate F” proportions. The double doors provide a wide 12-foot opening for loading/unloading on these big boxcars, which are known as “Super Duty” cars.
Micro-Trains will provide fully assembled N-scale reproductions of these Union Pacific boxcars with separate end ladders, brake rod detail, etched-metal brake platforms, and painted underframe. The miniature will include accurate ride height characteristics, come equipped with 36-inch metal wheels, and body-mounted couplers. These Union Pacific examples will introduce a unique roof pattern design not previously offered for this model.
