N Scale Models
The general layout of these cars was a popular choice for the Union Pacific. Earlier Pullman Standard (1941-Plan 7469) and ACF (1949-Plan 7667151) baggage cars had the same overall length and door arrangement, but had four rectangular windows in each door instead of the single window of the Kato model. Doors could be substituted to add some variety to your fleet. There were also later versions from ACF (1961) and St. Louis Car Co. (1962) with the single window doors. That’s 103 single window and 35 four window full length baggage cars as counted from the UP diagrams in the UP Streamliners book! If you plan to model a UP mail train, you need a handful of these ubiquitous baggage cars.
