Worcester RR boxcars to their freight car fleet. These cars
were 5347 cu.ft. cars built by FMC Corp.
in the late 1970s. Athearn
made this freight car as a ready-to-roll HO scale 50' FMC
5347 Boxcar (#ATH92521) lettered for the P&W.
Marv Preussler created
these GBW/AHW models boxcars from Athearn's P&W freight car. GBW
#8077 has new reporting marks with no other paint outs. AHW #359 has the
logos painted out. Both match prototype photos. The models
have metal wheels, Kadee couplers, individual grab irons, etched metal
walkways on the ends of the cars, and have been weathered.
The cars are now busy at work on his GBW Kewaunee
