Item Number: ATL2002404

During the heyday of rail transport, livestock was routinely shipped in complete trainloads to packing plants throughout the country. The typical stock car was based upon a 40' box car modified with open slat sides and possibly internal decking for the smaller breeds of animals. Designed primarily for transporting cows and pigs, original stock cars date back to the 1860s, and could carry up to 20,000 pounds of livestock.

Their use became rare by the 1980s, due to humane, safety and cost concerns. This ATLAS O TRAINMAN model is a typical reproduction of a once-common freight car style. Resplendent with eye-popping details and engineered for reliability and historical accuracy, the ATLAS O TRAINMAN 40' Stock Car is a must-have addition to any O Scale layout!
