2010 WC/Soo Line brown “7-post” boxcar (SOME DECAL WORK REQUIRED)

This series of boxcars was built in 1968 by the Soo Line at its North Fond du Lac shops. “7-Post” boxcars were relatively uncommon on other railroads, but were the Soo Line’s signature boxcar from the mid-1960s through the 1980s. These models are based on the Accurail 50’ boxcar with unique side moldings specially commissioned by the SLHTS. (The simulated unpainted galvanized roof on the model shown here was done by the modeler.)

Remember, this is a Soo Line car with decals that need to be added to make it a WC reporting mark.
The model shown here has been modified from the original brown car described above to better reflect the appearance of the prototype cars. Those changes include a reworked side-sill profile, new stirrup steps and the simulated unpainted galvanized roof. Instructions for thes optional modifications are included in each kit. A great many Soo “7-Post” boxcars were sold to the new Wisconsin Central Ltd. after 1984. Decals are available from Accurail for renumbering these cars as well as for changing the reporting marks to “WC” as shown here. The car in the photo has also been renumbered. The Accurail decals are printed on backgrounds that match the paint of the car on which they are to be used. Information for ordering these decals from Accurail is included with each kit order.(Modified cars are not available to order.)
