Extra Data for Kit 19.01
Central Railroad of New Jersey 40' steel box car

The CNJ bought 200 of these automobile box cars 1926 from American Car & Foundry. Many of these cars were rebuilt with Youngstown doors and AB brake schdules in the 1940s.

Our kit is an update on a previously released Sunshine Models resin kit. The new RCW kit has a one-piece carbody to ease assembly. Kits include Tahoe Model Works #107 double truss sideframes, and Precision Design Company decals. Couplers are not included.

Resin Car Works would like to thank the following rail historians and modelers for their high quality work. Without their efforts, these kits would not have been produced.

Tom Madden - casting work
Ken Soroos - decal art prep
Frank Hodina - additional masters, kit instructions and model photo
Jerry Hamsmith - prototype research
