Product Announcement: HO Thrall 86-foot High-Cube Boxcar from ScaleTrains

ScaleTrains announces an all-new Rivet Counter freight car release due in early 2024. The highly detailed replica will provide an early version Thrall 86-foot high-cube boxcar in HO scale. This version (dating from the car’s 1964 introduction in North American railroading) will feature high-mount brake, tall ladders, and running boards. This reproduction will include 10-foot double-plug doors. The model will ride on 33-inch metal wheels with Keystone sliding-sill cushion couplers. ScaleTrains states this model will operate on a minimum 24-inch radius curve.

The first collection will provide six road numbers for each of the six coming road names: Chicago & North Western, Denver & Rio Grande Western, Frisco, Santa Fe, Southern Railway, and Wabash. ScaleTrains is accepting reservations on this all-new Thrall 86-foot high-cube boxcar with a January 31, 2024 delivery announced for this release, which is selling for $51.99. The model is available direct from ScaleTrains and via its participating hobby dealers.
