As the new “7-post” 50’ boxcars were being assembled at the Soo’s North Fond du Lac shops in the 1960s and 70s, most of the earlier 40’ boxcars constructed there in the 1950s were ready for upgrading and repainting. These later repaints also received the new Venus Bold Extended billboard lettering which had been adopted for the “New Soo” image after the 1961 merger. All other lettering on these cars was done in a more modern Gothic style.

The sliding door model represents a car built at NFduL in 1953 and upgraded and repainted there in 1971. Its reporting marks and car numbers are 7” high. All lettering is white on a dark oxide car body.

The plug/sliding door model represents a car built at NFduL in 1959 and upgraded and repainted there in 1973. This car’s reporting marks and car numbers are 9” high in a later style. Again, all lettering is white on a dark oxide car body.

Anyone modeling the Soo or other mid-Western railroads from 1970 forward needs some of these commonly seen upgraded 1950s Soo Line boxcars to roll along with newer equipment.
