BS-86ft DD Auto-Parts Box Desc : N Scale : 

Pullman Standard 86’ Auto Parts Box Cars

Bluford Shops is proud to announce N scale Pullman Standard 86’ Auto Parts Box Cars in both Double and Quad Door versions. These cars have injection molded plastic bodies, etched metal details, operating knuckle couplers, accurately appearing trucks and cushion draft gear enclosures.

These cars first appeared in the mid-60s and are still in use today. Unlike general service freight cars, auto parts boxes are assigned to pools based on a mileage formula and often spend most of their time off home rails. In other words, “foreign road” cars usually out-number home road cars in a given parts train to the point that if you missed the locomotives passing, you would have a hard time telling whose train it was! That makes for colorful and interesting trains that are fun to model.

Southern Pacific (big SP) 86’ boxcars. This group was delivered by Greenville to Cotton Belt’s parent Southern Pacific almost two years later. While the gray arrows, big SP and “Hy-Cube Cushion-Car” lettering were the same, nearly all of the other lettering was different from their SSW predecessors, notably the “SOUTHERN PACIFIC” in the upper left.

BS-86522 Rio Grande 86ft DD Hi-Cube Boxcar 2-pack

BS-86521 - Rio Grande “Orange” single - Road #: TBA - 86ft Double-door Hi-Cube - 2-pack

Rio Grande received this group of cars from Greenville in late 1969. They were originally assigned for loading at a Ford plant on the Penn Central in Utica, Michigan. Rio Grande had no auto assembly plants on their line but their position as a bridge route between the Midwest and West Coast obliged them to contribute cars to several pools. As a result these cars were often found far from home rails.

BS-86491 ATSF 86ft DD Auto Parts Boxcar

Santa Fe (AUTO PARTS) [ATSF]  - Road #: TBA - 86ft Double door Hi-Cube boxcar - single car

Just in time for Christmas of 1967, Santa Fe received this batch of Santa-Suit-Red boxcars from Pullman Standard. Okay, it’s actually “Santa Fe Indian Red.” These included the big “AUTO PARTS” lettering that would be omitted from cars delivered in later years. These cars were assigned to the New York Central agent in Monroe, Michigan for the loading of Ford body panels. The red with silver doors and roof and black and white ends make this car really stand out.

BS-86502 Southern 86ft DD Auto Parts Boxcar 2-pack

Southern (Serves The South/Super Cushion Service - Road #: TBA - 86ft Double door Hi-Cube boxcar - 2-pack

Southern received these cars from Pullman Standard in the Summer of 1966 in this paint scheme. This group was initially assigned for loading at Ford’s stamping plant on the N&W (previously Wabash) in Buffalo, New York (note the “BUFF” below the road number.) Southern’s inclusion in this multi-railroad pool of cars was based on having a Ford assembly plant on their line in Georgia. However, Southern cars in this pool could move stampings from the Buffalo plant to any Ford plant anywhere in the country as demand required. This is typical of how auto-parts car pools operated.
