General Steel Castings 60-Ton Well Car

General Steel Castings offered a 60-ton well car in its product line of one piece cast steel car bodies in 1958.  The buyer railroads purchased the components and assembled the cars in their own shops.

The body and detail parts are injection molded plastic, while the well and underframe are diecast.  Intricate and accurate detail includes a free-standing vertical brakewheel.  These cars ride at the prototypically-correct height, with the well a mere ten scale inches above the rails.  The model rides on Atlas' Barber S-2 friction-bearing truck frames fitted with Fox Valley Models 28" low-profile wheelsets, and features body-mounted Micro-Trains® #2001/2004 couplers.

Operation of this model over curved trackage of less than 10-inch radius is not recommended.

Also available are the following associated products:

• Atlas Model Railroad Company - Barber S-2A truck frames.

• Micro-Trains Line - #2001 reverse draft angle body-mount short-shank couplers.

• Fox Valley Models - #2810 Low-profile machine-cut metal wheels.


These products are not toys and are not recommended for children under 14 years of age.
