Earlier this month, Atlas announced it will produce new paint schemes and road numbers for its 50 ft Precision Design Box Cars.

The 50 ft Precision Design Box Cars will run $25.95 and $19.95 (undecorated). Built by ACF in the late 1960's and early 1970's, this ready-to-run model comes in both smooth side and rib side versions as per the prototype.

The smooth-side version will be available in 6 new road numbers, 2 each for MKT, Louisville & Nashville and Illinois Central.

The rib-side version will be available in 2 new paint schemes for CSX (ex-Contrail NYC patch) and Conrail. Six new road numbers (2 each) will be available for Frisco, BN and Chessie System/WM.
