The Pullman Standard 50' PS-1
Box Car was one of the most successful freight car designs of the
1950s and '60s. While its standardized design contributed to ease of
construction, it still offered the railroads and leasing companies a
host of options that facilitated the cargo that the cars were destined
to haul. The optional plug door RBL version is the latest variation
that Atlas O now offers of its equally-popular O scale model.
The typical RBL car was an
insulated box car that was designed to carry canned goods that
required protection from extremes of temperature, but not
refrigeration. These cars had neither ice bunkers nor cooling units.
The plug-style doors were normally used on these cars to ensure a
tight body seal and to protect the loads from outside dust and dirt.
