PRR EXPRESS CARS

The Pennsylvania Railroad was a tenant of NYC Central Terminal, with 4 trains arriving and departing daily in June of 1942.  This gave me an opportunity to have some PRR headend cars for the REA express platforms.

A string of four PRR cars is used in the express car switching operation is shown below

All cars are from Walthers.  They have been around for a while, but are very nice models and I like them a lot.  The car above is a Class R50b Express Refrigerator and is only modified with Kadee #158 couplers along with weathering by airbrush.

Likewise are the three Class B60b cars shown below.  All have the pre-war olive coloured trucks, weathered to look not so conspicuous.
