S-Helper S Scale USRA 40’ Rebuilt Steel Boxcar, Santa Fe/Grand Canyon
In 1933, the Youngstown Steel Door and the Pullman-Standard Car Manufacturing companies developed a USRA boxcar rebuild “kit” with pre-fabricated steel sides and doors that could be placed on the original steel underframes. When these wooden cars were rebuilt into steel cars, their lifespan was greatly extended at minimal cost. Thousands of these USRA rebuilt steel sided boxcars served railroads across the country well into the 1960s.
