BC Rail 40-Ft Stahl Güterwagen, (Steel Box car) BCOL 4020
Description: English below

Gedeckte Güterwagen aus Stahl wurden in den 1940er Jahren immer öfter eingesetzt um die Holz Güterwagen, die leicht Schaden nahmen, zu ersetzen. Diese Wagen waren zwar teuer in der Beschaffung wurden aber kurzfristig zum Industrie-Standard da sie stabiler waren, weniger Wartung benötigten und weil sie länger hielten. Diese Güterwagen waren auch als rollende Werbeflächen bekannt.

Stahlgüterwagen (aus Kunststoff) mit:
- Funktionsfähigen AAR Klauenkupplungen vorne und hinten
- Detaillierte gefederte Drehgestelle
- Türen zum Öffnen mit beweglichem Riegel
- Dreidimensionale Leitern an den Enden und Seiten
- Messing Handläufe und Bodenbelag mit simulierter Holzmaserung
- Komplettes Sprengwerk mit detaillierter Bremsanlage
- Realistische Beschriftung und authentische Details

Eine komplette Liste aller Aristo-Craft 40-Fuß gedeckter Stahl-Güterwagen der Serie 460xx finder man im Eintrag des 46000 Güterwagens hier: http://www.gbdb.info/details.php?image_id=4270


Steel Box Cars gained popularity in the 1940's after damage-prone Wood Box Cars fell out of favor. Although costly to construct, Steel Box Cars quickly became the industry standard because of their strength, low maintenance cost, and long lifespan. Box Cars, in general, are also known for being 'billboards on wheels' with their beautifully painted ends and sides.

Steel Box cars with:
- Front / Rear Operating AAR Knuckle Couplers
- Detailed freight car trucks / wheelsets with individual springs
- Operating doors with moveable latch
- Three-dimensional ladders on ends and sides
- Brass grab-railings and simulated wood-grain flooring
- Full Underframe, including Air Brake System components
- Realistic painting and authentic detailing
Length: 17-5/8 inches
