Pennsylvania Railroad Merchandising Box Car

The PRR Merchandising car was produced for the SJSG by Pacific Rail Shop. As one of the
host clubs of the Valley Forge "S" Convention, it was
our privilege to produce the Convention Car. It was a 50' Box Car in PRR red with a
silver stripe with red and white accent markings. The car was the
first model ever produced that had the silver stripe through the door.
As our first club car project, it was a huge success (of course
the convention may have had something to do with that!)

"To celebrate our FIFTH
Anniversary, the South Jersey 'S' Gaugers, in conjunction
with Pacific Rail Shop, is proud to announce the FIRST Double
Door AAR Automobile Car - The 'Pennsylvania Railroad X-37-B'
in several road numbers."
The above announcement comes from the original
announcement flyer in late 1994. Unfortunately, this quality injection molded model is no longer
available. The SJSG contracted Pacific Rail Shop to
produce an additional run of these cars in two new numbers after our first introduction of this
car sold out. There were four road numbers made in all, one has "Buy War Bonds" emblazoned on the side,
another has "Return to Michigan".
The AAR X37B is an unique model kit crafted with
traditional Pacific Rail Shops quality. The car is in PRR Box car
red with white letters and insignia. The car was available with an
assortment of Hi-Rail and Scale trucks and couplers. The
selling price for the kit was $35.00.
