Almost every train needs a baggage car, from the hot-shot streamliner to the two-car branchline local. This National Steel Car smooth side baggage-express car has been in use throughout North America for over 60 years. These cars, along with similar cars from other builders, carried baggage and express traffic on primary, secondary and mixed trains. Many carried sealed mail for the post office. These cars were used until recently on Amtrak, VIA Rail, Ontario Northland, Algoma Central and are still used on several tourist lines.
The 73ft 6in Baggage-Express Car brings a new level of realism to N scale modelers everywhere and has all the details you’ve come to expect from our N scale Panorama Line cars. This all-new car incorporates all of the superb features included on our most recent releases, including the 10-5 Sleeper and the Cafe-Bar-Lounge.
