SPSF RAIL-O-GRAM FEATURES:

This unique car was painted by the Santa Fe, and was subsequently signed by many people in support of the SPSF merger proposal. Despite this, the merger was subsequently denied by the ICC.

PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:

Pullman Standard introduced the all steel PS-1 box car in several diffent sizes including 40’, 50’ and 60’ lengths. Multiple door configurations and styles made these box cars very flexible. Pullman Standard had their own signature details, such as rolled non-terminating ends, and bow-tie stamped metal roofs. These were signature elements that identified the PS-1 among the other freight car builders of the time.
