In 1976, Conrail was formed from the financially struggling ashes of several Northeastern railroads, including Penn Central, Erie Lackawanna, Central Railroad of New Jersey, Lehigh & Hudson River and Reading Railroad.
Conrail used equipment and rolling stock from each of these predecessor roads. One of the latest releases from Micro-Trains is a pair of ex-Reading 50-foot boxcars patched for Conrail. Each car is finished with exquisite weathering unique to each side of each car for an outstanding appearance. Both cars are fitted with factory-supplied Micro-Trains magnetic knuckle couplers and roller bearing trucks.
Presented as a boxed set, the SKU for this release is 993 05 860. MSRP $62.95 for the pair, available now from your favorite authorized Micro-Trains dealer.
