In particular the Pullman Standard or PS-1 design was one of the most popular and was widely used by North American railroads. Pullman had been making freight cars for more than half a century when it hit a home run with the PS-1. Introduced in 1947, it set the standard for postwar American freight cars. What made the PS-1 a landmark was its welded construction — an area in which Pullman led the industry. In addition to lighter weight, welding offered superior strength and better resistance to weather and corrosion than contemporary riveted cars. Like the EMD diesels that became ubiquitous on American railroads, the PS-1 was part of the postwar shift away from customized, railroad-specific locos and cars toward standardized designs produced in large quantities on efficient assembly lines. No wonder the PS-1 was soon followed by the highly successful PS-2 covered hopper, PS-3 open hopper, PS-4 flatcar, and PS-5 gondola.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2022-02-05T18:16:44-05:00","created_at":"2021-06-24T12:53:57-04:00","vendor":"Atlas Model Railroad Company","type":"Rolling Stock","tags":["3-rail","50-200","atlas-model-railroad-company","boxcar","in-stock","rock-island","rolling-stock","scale_o"],"price":6995,"price_min":6995,"price_max":6995,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":7995,"compare_at_price_min":7995,"compare_at_price_max":7995,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":40324420403352,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"AO-3001844","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Atlas O 3001844 - Premier - 40’ PS-1 Boxcar \"Rock Island\"","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":6995,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":7995,"inventory_quantity":36,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/8714125d-5a8d-1212-4498-1be45943d241.jpg?v=1644077751","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/o3001844.jpg?v=1644077751"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/8714125d-5a8d-1212-4498-1be45943d241.jpg?v=1644077751","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":29142058139894,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.778,"height":675,"width":1200,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/8714125d-5a8d-1212-4498-1be45943d241.jpg?v=1644077751"},"aspect_ratio":1.778,"height":675,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/8714125d-5a8d-1212-4498-1be45943d241.jpg?v=1644077751","width":1200},{"alt":null,"id":23504829907096,"position":2,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":800,"width":800,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/o3001844.jpg?v=1644077751"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":800,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1011\/0560\/products\/o3001844.jpg?v=1644077751","width":800}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ctable width=\"100%\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 27.2172%;\"\u003eAnnounced Date:\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 67.7828%;\"\u003eN\/A\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 27.2172%;\"\u003eReleased Date:\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 67.7828%;\"\u003eJan 2022\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 27.2172%;\"\u003eIndividually Boxed:\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 67.7828%;\"\u003eNo - 4 to a case\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003c\/tbody\u003e\n\u003c\/table\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eRoad Name: Rock Island \"DF2\" (Brown\/Black\/White)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eRoad Number: \u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e5847, 5850\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eProduct Line: Atlas O Premier\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eScale: O Scale\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSystem: 3-Rail\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eEstimated Release: 4th Quarter 2021\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTwo road numbers are available per road name.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatures:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eIntricately Detailed Durable ABS Body \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMetal Wheels and Axles \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eDie-Cast 4-Wheel Trucks \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eOperating Die-Cast Metal Couplers \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eColorful, Attractive Paint Schemes \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eDecorative Brake Wheels \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSeparate Metal Handrails \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFast-Angle Wheel Sets \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNeedle-Point Axles \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSliding Car Doors \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1:48 Scale Dimensions \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUnit Measures: 11 5\/8” x 2 5\/8” x 3 3\/4” \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eOperates On O-31 Curves\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOverview:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe 40’ Boxcar is widely known as one of the most popular freight cars used by railroads as they transitioned from steam to diesel.
