For bulk loading of grain, boxcars were equipped with temporary "grain doors" which held back the contents. While loading and unloading were more time consuming than with a hopper, the boxcar could be used year-round in general service until needed for the grain rush. Boxcars remained a common method of grain shipments into the 1970s.
These new models add a new twist to Lionel's beautifully detailed PS-1 boxcars and are ready to handle your railroad's wheat rush!
