2001 MURPHY 40' DS AUTO CAR T&P $40.00

Operating Era: 1925-1973. Texas & Pacific. Missouri Pacific controlled Texas & Pacific for many years. It is not surprising that car design was similar. T&P auto cars delivered in 1924 were identical to MP cars delivered the same year except for the type of side sheathing. Of the 1,000 cars delivered, all were converted to single door box cars in the 1930`s. About half of these were almost immediately given steel sheathing. The DS box cars lasted to about 1950 when many were steel sheathed. Steel sheathed cars lasted into the 1970`s. Our models duplicate the life of the car for as delivered auto cars and 1930`s DS and steel rebuilds. We call these cars `Murphy` because they had Murphy radial roofs and reverse corrugation ends; our kits are the first to model such features. PLEASE SEE OUR DS BOX CAR AND STEEL BOX CAR SECTIONS FOR OTHER #2000 SERIES KITS.
