Rapido 137004-3 Golden West Service (Ventura County VCY, blue, yellow, red) #140008 Class B-100-40 Plug-Door Boxcar HO Scale. Picture may show a different road number.

Introducing the all new Rapido HO scale Pacific Car & Foundry B-100-40 boxcar! With 250 cars delivered exclusively to the Southern Pacific in 1976, these featured a 5195-cu ft capacity, full Hydra-Cushion underframe, 12' doors, Car Pac loaders and the iconic half-height waffle sides. Used across the SP system, these utilitarian boxcars could be seen throughout the USA as well as Canada. Most of the series are still in service today, many for SP successor Union Pacific and others in short line service. In addition, several cars from this series were purchased from the SP by Amtrak in the mid 1990's for use in express service on most trains across the system. These cars had some minor modifications including the large wheel door handle, brackets for the end of train device and struts added to the trucks for extra stability at higher speeds. We will be including these features as well as appropriate.

As a follow up to the B-100-40, SP ordered an extra 100 cars in the B-100-43 series in 1978 which used the same design patterns. These differed with a Keystone underframe and some other small details.

The Rapido Trains HO scale PC&F B-100-40 boxcar features:

  • Separately applied metal grab irons
  • Scale sized draft gear with a detailed Hydra-Cushion underframe
  • Full underbody brake rigging
  • Factory-installed Rapido semi-scale knuckle couplers
  • Newly tooled trucks with turned metal 36" wheels
  • Separate door rods and door tracks
  • Road number specific number patches
  • Separately applied coupler cut levers
