Maryland & Pennsylvania RR 700 series Box Cars
The Ma & Pa built these cars in the late 1920s using parts from previous cars. These wooden truss rod cars served the railroad for many years with a few lasting into the early 60’s long after other railroads would have scraped them for more modern equipment. Cars #713 and #723 are now preserved at the Strasburg Railroad and car #727 is preserved by the Williams Grove Historical Steam Engine Association. Car #729 is the lone box car in Jim Gallagher’s famous November 10, 1955 photo of one of the Ma & Pa’s last steam powered freight trains.

Hi. Have looked at all your creations. The cars are amazing and they look like real with many fine details. Studied your sloping roof on RR 700 series Box Cars, but can not figure out how you made it.
