Broadway Limited Imports encourages everyone to patronize their local hobby shops whenever possible. For those without a BLI reseller within reasonable proximity, we recommend the following online dealers who regularly and reliably ship BLI products worldwide.
Shortly before |
WW I, the NYC and PRR pioneered the construction of all-steel box cars
with steel sheathing. In 1922, the NYC began delivering their NYC
Specification 486 steel box car. These became the second most
populous steel box cars on America's railroads, second only to the PRR X29
cars. From the 1920s through the late 1950's, these cars could be
found everywhere on the New York Central system, as well as traveling in
interchange almost everywhere in North America. Variations in design
over the decades were relatively few, and Broadway Limited Imports will
model these cars as most of them appeared in the late 40's and 50's.
BLI's models will have rectangular-paneled roofs, corrugated doors, AB
brakes, ARA U-section trucks, and a steel-grid running board along the top
of the car. The models will not have patch panels on the sides.
We will offer the cars with two versions of end caps - 7-8 corrugated ends
and Dreadnaught ends.
