A new HO scale boxcar based on a 1970s prototype has been released by Atlas Model Railroad Co. The FMC 5,347-cubic-foot-capacity boxcar features a one-piece injection-molded plastic body, wire grab irons, etched-metal crossover platforms, and separately applied ladders and stirrup steps.

FMC Corp. produced the 5,347- cubic-foot-capacity boxcar at its plant in Portland, Ore. Some of the spotting features of the boxcar include seven exterior posts on each side of the door, 3/3 non-terminating ends, and bolsters attached to the sill with six fasteners in a U-shaped pattern.
