Santa Fe “Super Shock Control” class Bx-146 PC&F exterior post insulated boxcar #522352

Wheels of Time is proud to announce our all new Pacific Car & Foundry 70-ton 50-ft Exterior Post Insulated Boxcars with two different door designs. They feature highly detailed car body and undercarriage, body-mounted knuckle couplers, proper ride height, metal wheels for smooth rolling, multiple authentic car numbers, and Youngstown or Landis Plug door according to the actual boxcar. In likeness of the real thing, Wheels of Time models will also have Keystone cushioning details for boxcars so equipped.

These PC&F 70-ton 50-ft Exterior Post Insulated Boxcars, built in Renton Washington, were prevalent from the late 1960's and through 1980's. Their exterior post design became the way boxcars are fabricated largely replacing the double sheathed (smooth side) car body construction. These insulated cars measured 50-ft. 6-in. (or 7-inches in some cases) in interior length and had a cargo capacity of roughly 4400 to 5033 cu. ft. They were equipped to hold shifting loads with built in restraining devices such as from Car Pac or DF Evans. Further, their 20-inch cushioning devices on the cars absorbed the longitudinal forces resulting from slack action that can damage the cargo. They carried food products such as can goods, drinks, packaged food products, dog food, and even chocolate - which needed protection from the changes in temperature, but required no refrigeration.

The Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway received 300 class Bx-146 50-ft 6-in XLI Insulated Boxcars from Pacific Car & Foundry in 1971. These cars had a cargo volume of approximately 4433 cu. ft. They were equipped with Keystone 20-in Shock Control cushioning and were lettered with their famous slogan on the sides of the boxcar by Santa Fe as "Super Shock Control". They were equipped with Landis Plug Doors. They carried food product that didn't require refrigerations but needed insulation from the weather. Built date 3-71. ATSF Super Shock Control car will have Landis Doors as per prototype - actually Plate B car: Plate B is 15'-1" vs Plate C 15'-5" over extreme height.
