Berwick Forge & Fabricating built over 23,000 freight cars in its nearly 20 years of existence in Berwick, Pennsylvania. Their designs were very successful and most of the cars are still in service today. While Berwick built virtually all modern types of freight cars, they are perhaps best known for their 50’ and 60’ box cars.
This Atlas O model replicates the interesting series of 60’ high-capacity cars that were built by Berwick in the late 70s. These Hy-Cube cars feature centered double plug-doors and a waffle pattern on the car sides.
