Description

Atlas-O makes the finest O-Scale rolling stock available. They feature lots of detail and high quality. These cars are so realistic that you will swear you can smell the smoke and feel the cinders!

During the heyday of rail transport, livestock was routinely shipped in complete trainloads to packing plants throughout the country. The typical stock car was based upon a 40? box car modified with open slat sides and possibly internal decking for the smaller breeds of animals. Designed primarily for transporting cows and pigs, original stock cars date back to the 1860?s, and could carry up to 20,000 pounds of livestock.

Their use became rare by the 1980?s, due to humane, safety and cost concerns. This ATLAS O TRAINMAN model is a typical reproduction of a once-common freight car style. Resplendent with eye-popping details and engineered for reliability and historical accuracy, the ATLAS O TRAINMAN 40? Stock Car is a must-have addition to any O Scale layout!
