Our paper cost has gone up 85% since the 2022 calendars were printed, and that paper is much harder to acquire with long lead times.

1950's FREIGHT CAR COLOR GUIDE - VOL 1: BOX CARS/Kinkaid-Donnelly

Default Title: $59.95 USD

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING

The 1950s are arguably the classic era for freight cars, pre-dating the mergers that would erase many venerable roads and leave us with new names such as Penn Central, Seaboard Coast Lines, and Erie-Lackawanna. In the 1950s, "box car red" was everywhere, but colorful new paint schemes were arriving and turning heads. It was the final decade of friction bearings and roof walks, and the ultimate years of stock cars, ice-bunker refrigerator cars, and even the XM 40' box car!
