Micro-Trains doesn't do it often but every once in a while the Oregon-based company announces plans to issue NEW toolings / body styles.

On June 30, 2017, as part of its July 2017 New Products Announcements, Micro-Trains announced it will release 3 new body styles: a 50 foot standard box car with three different door treatments. Each new release will be available in one road name with one road number. These models are based on Pullman-Standard prototypes built in the 1950s and 1960s.

50 foot standard box car 8' Plug Door, w/o roofwalk, short ladders
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe

50 foot standard box car 8' Double Sliding Doors, w/o roofwalk, short ladders
Denver & Rio Grande Western

All three new body styles will include new etched metal brake platforms.

Per usual, we can expect Micro-Trains to ship these items mid-month July 2017. Here is a link to the Micro-Trains website.
