Note: This line of car had some issues with the coupler cut levers. Some of them might become loose during transport. There is an extra pair included in a sealed bag. They are attached with a dab of glue from factory.
In the mid 1970’s, FMC set out to produce a box car, suitable for IPD and Railbox. The product they designed was the
5,077 cubic-foot box car, with 10 foot doors, X-panelling on the roof and corrugated ends. FMC designed and built a car
that was meant to withstand the test of time. The first customer to purchase these cars was SSI Rail Corp, for IPD leasing.
They purchased the single and double door designs, which still see service today, many for second and third-hand leasing
corporations. The Western Pacific was the only Class I operation to purchase the doube door 5077. Wearing a few different
paint schemes for WP, UP and later leasing operations. The Atlas Master® FMC 5077 Double Door Box Car captures the fine
details, while showing the ruggedness of the design. From the X-Panelling on the roof to the signature FMC sidesills, this is
a must have car on any layout.
