Modern version Era: 1935-1973 DECAL: D12801 INSTRUCTIONS: INST 12800 PDF HISTORY: HIST 12801 PDF KIT TYPE: One-Piece Body Kit Our newest HO Kit release is the #12800 Series B-50-15 single sheathed box car with steel sheathing, Murphy radial roof and AB brakes for Southern Pacific and subsidiaries. Our One-Piece Body Kit covers series #14480-15229, 750 cars built in 1925 by Standard Steel Car Co. The original single wood sheathed box cars differed from previous SP types in that they used hat section side posts of the 1924 design in a Pratt truss arrangement. In 1935, SP began converting the cars to steel sheathing, first for Pacific Motor Trucking (PMT) service, then for Baggage Express (BX) service in 1942. Freight versions of these cars also began receiving steel sheathing in this period and by the beginning of WWII, 930 cars in freight service had been converted (Total of all B-50-15 built versions was 3900 cars). Beginning in 1942, the cars began receiving AB brakes as well. Look for future Westerfield Kit releases covering the PMT, BX and Overnight versions of these cars. Our unpainted HO Kits include detail parts appropriate for the B-50-15, including the following details: Improved Cast Urethane One-Piece Body Construction with Fine Details. Urethane Castings of detail parts, including many car specific parts. Detailed Hi-Tech rubber air hoses. Yarmouth Etched Bronze Corner Steps and Carmer uncoupling levers. Proprietary Decals covering all freight versions of the car. Detailed Step by Step Instructions and History Sheets with assembly and finished model photographs.
