It's 1944 and the country needs steel - a lot of steel - to
fight the world war. This Kewaunee Green Bay & Western gondola
is spotted at the salvage yard, ready to take a load of scrap iron
to the mill to be converted into new steel.
This HO McKean 40' PS-1 boxcar kit came pre-painted and lettered
by Accurate Finishing for GBW 682 with a 1967 rebuilt date on the
car. The kit is a close, though not exact, model of the prototype,
but it captures the overall feel of GBW's ubiquitous yellow boxcar
fleet of the 1960s and beyond.
