Beginning in 1898 with the formation of the Colorado & Southern Railroad, new cars were ordered from the St. Charles Car Works. Three types were delivered over the next several years each building an improvement over the last:
Type I (1898-1900) Featured Truss Rods and Arch Bar Trucks.
Type II (1900-1901) had newer Bettendorf Cast Steel Trucks.
Type III (1901-1910) ware comparable to standard gauge cars of the day with an all-steel underframe.
Other details varied amongst all the group’s these were end doors, and three styles of roof (Wood double board, and Steel Murphy style with both 9-rib and 12-rib versions).
After abandonment in 1935 48 of these cars went to the RGS to be known as the “Miller Cars”, While most of the boxcars went to the WP&Y.
We have produced 6 variations of these cars; two body variations; with end door or without. Along with your choice of the roof style; Original wood plank, or Murphy Steel in either the 9 or 12 rib versions.
