This is a picture of a BLMA Models release of this 62 foot
double sliding door insulated BX-166 box car.

On February 7, 2018, Atlas announced it will release another BLMA Models tooling (the n-scale BX-166 box car) under the Atlas Master product line. (Atlas acquired BLMA Models in January 2016.)

The pre-order deadline for this item (MSRP $34.95) is Wednesday, March 14, 2018 with an estimated arrival of 3rd quarter, 2018.

This item will come undecorated and in a number of different paint schemes with new road numbers for each scheme.

Some product features will include: separately applied wire grab irons and wire cut levers, metal wheels and knuckle couplers, which will be body-mounted. Both body-mounted couplers and metal wheels are product features associated with third generation n-scale models. (Please see our blog The Evolution of N-Scale Rolling Stock Models).
