Steel Castings offered a 60-ton well car in its product line
of one piece cast steel car bodies in 1958.
The buyer railroads purchased the components and assembled the
cars in their own shops.
The body and detail parts are injection molded plastic, while
the well and underframe are diecast. Intricate
and accurate detail includes a free-standing vertical brakewheel.
These cars ride at the prototypically-correct
height, with the well a mere ten scale inches above the rails.
The model rides on Atlas' Barber S-2 frictionbearing
truck frames fitted with Fox Valley Models 28" low-profile
wheelsets, and features body-mounted
Micro-Trains® #2004 couplers.
Operation of this model over curved trackage of less than 10-inch
radius is not recommended.
