New Body Style - Pullman-Standard PS-2 2-Bay Covered Hopper

COMING 2021!

During the mid-1950’s, Pullman-Standard developed a revolutionary all-welded steel, 2,003 cubic-foot two bay covered hopper that would become one of the most popular cars of its type with railroads and private industry. The PS-2 had a dividing wall inside so multiple products could be carried at the same time and its 8 round hatches allowed for quick, efficient loading.  It was designed to haul everything from powdered chemicals, to grains, to construction materials such as sand or cement. Versatile and durable, this car continued in revenue service into the early 2000’s, and was sometimes found later in MOW service.

This Micro-Trains N-scale release will feature separate roof hatches, a fine-scale cored-through plastic walkway, 33” factory-installed metal wheels, proper ride height, body mounted Magne-Matic couplers with blackened trip pins, and prototypically accurate paint schemes and markings.
