D&RGW 5500 Series Double-Deck Stock Car, Flying Grand #5710, Weathered:
These cars represent a new spin on the well-known narrow gauge stock car. Sheep were plentiful in the American West and the narrow gauge railroads were responsible for moving the diminutive woollies to market. As built, many stock cars were made of the traditional, single deck design that would accommodate the shipment of cattle. Some railroads realized the cost advantage of enhancing many of these cars to a double deck design that would accommodate smaller animals while virtually doubling the loading capacity.
Blackstone Models has used a combination of plastic and die-cast parts to create a weighted and balanced car that will cut into any consist and run smoothly along with the rest of your HOn3 freight cars.
MSRP is $59.95.
