RAPIDO TRAINS - NORTHERN PACIFIC 10000 SERIES BOXCAR!
The iconic 10000-series Northern Pacific 40-foot DS Boxcar was built by Western Steel Foundry in Portland throughout the 1920s. 4000 cars were built and many remained in service for over 50 years in regular service and then in company service. These could be found on most NP freight trains as well as on freights across the United States and Canada. Really - you need a lot of these even if you model Motown, Moncton or Miami. They made it that far.
Rapido's model has been scaled from original blueprints and field measurements. Most importantly, we have worked closely with Dean O'Neill, Rick Leach, and other members of the NPRHA to make sure that this boxcar is as accurate as our technology and budget will allow
