All About Postage Stamp Trains
By the late 1940s, 50-foot boxcars were beginning to replace 40-footers as railroads sought to move more goods with fewer cars. As was the case with their smaller brothers, Pullman Standard cars came with a variety of doors, and the ones on Roco's model have excessively-deep relief, not to mention the fact that Youngstown doors (right) were far more prevalent. Be that as it may, it's probably safe to say that almost every railroad had some of these, although they're too old for the Penn Central.
