Suleski Transportation received their 2015 Christmas Present today. Yes that’s right 2015. We purchased 4 - 50’ Gunderson Hi Cube Boxcars when they were to be released in the 1st quarter of 2016. (the AML News web page still touts this) This was ok’d by our chief finacial officer. Today ST #29 an SD-40-2 was photographed bringing them into the yard.
Here is a link to a flickr folder -50’ Hi Cubes
These cars come with AML truck mounted couplers but also include Hook & Loop and Pad Mounted AML couplers for body mounting. There is a place to mount their coupler or a Kadee Body Mount. I love the colors for the TTX and CSXT but am not to crazy about the Green for the Stone Container Corp car. (Although I have to admit I’ve never seen one of these in real life.)
There are a lot of fine detail parts but no moving parts. The door is fixed.
I will have these weathered in time to run at the Springfield Show in late January.
