Athearn is re-releasing this 50 foot FMC Double Door Box Car.


On January 26, 2018, Athearn announced that it will re-release the n-scale 50 foot FMC double door box car (this is a tooling originally purchased from Roundhouse).

With this announcement, Athearn continues to issue re-releases that include what more and more n-scalers have come to expect as standard features on n-scale rolling stock: body-mounted couplers and highly-detailed cars (via injection molded technology).

This re-release will include 3 new road numbers for each of the 12 road names: British Columbia Railway, Burlington Northern, Chicago & North Western, Chesapeake & Ohio, Northern Alberta Railway, Western Pacific, Amador Central, East St. Louis Junction, Galveston Wharves, Longview Portland & Northern, Southern Pacific and Wisconsin Central. Orders are due February 23, 2018 with an ETA of January 2019.

MSRP is $22.95 per car.

These ready-to-run cars will feature some of the following: Machined metal wheels, Screw mounted trucks and Body-mounted McHenry knuckle couplers
