Accurail HO scale Milwaukee Road boxcar

Read this review from Model Railroader magazine
RELATED TOPICS: FREIGHT CARS | HO SCALE
Accurail has added a 40-foot Milwaukee Road ribbed-side single-door boxcar to its range of HO scale freight car kits. But this isn’t a newly tooled model. Instead, the manufacturer has revived the former Rib Side Cars tooling.

The prototype. The Accurail kit is based on Milwaukee Road ribbed-side boxcars from the 18000 through 21187 series. These cars were built by the railroad between October 1939 and September 1940 at its shops in Milwaukee, Wis. The key spotting feature of this group of single-door boxcars is the full-length ribs. On later cars, the ribs ended at the ladders and grab irons.
