Georgia RR House Car

Georgia RR House Car

About one-third of the freight rolling stock during the early 1860's was the boxcar, often called a 'house car.' The railroads were in the early stages of development, and so were the freight cars. Boxcars of this type with varying details were seen in many of the early war photos.

Very little data exists for the Georgia Railroad cars. Only one known photo exists of this house car and a flat car.

The model features the interior bracing, canvas roof, flooring, and positionable doors. The kit contains laser-cut wood components with hardware in plastic and lost-wax brass. Less decals, trucks and couplers.
