PROTOTYPICAL HO SCALE MODELS
OF THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD
AND ITS SUBSIDIARY ROADS

This site is a list of all the non-brass kits that produce an exact model of a prototype car. Requirements for this list:
  1. kit comes out of the box an exact match, with no modification or
  2. dimensions of the kit are an exact match, and it either needs details added or details changed (change door or ends).
This is not a kit-bashing page (the model magazines do a great job of explaining how to match the prototype if you have to do that in order to create an exact model). If you would like to add to this list, please contact the host.

Numbers in parenthesis indicate prototype road numbers for a kit. For example, (1600-1969) indicates that 370 road numbers are correct for the kit.

Modeling the 1937 AAR by Tim O'Connor
Red Caboose acquired the IMWX tooling for the 1937 AAR design single door box car with 4/5 ends and rounded (W-post) corners. Red Caboose produced a modified version with square (S-post) corners. Both of these are completely accurate for several series of SP box cars as long as you apply the appropriate running boards, brake wheels, doors and trucks for each class (B-50-18, -19, -20, -21, -23) SP purchased many thousands of these cars and they would be the newest style box car on the SP until after WWII. The Red Caboose GS gondolas are correct for late 40's SP. The Life-Like (Proto 2000) 50 foot single door and double door box cars are pretty close to SP B-50-22 and A-50-14's respectively, and those are good from the early 1940's and later. Red Caboose and Proto 2000 have released many versions and special runs of the above cars decorated for SP. Intermountain also has produced a 1937 AAR box car, but in my opinion the old IMWX tooling is far superior, especially the roof.

The following is from Mr. Anderson, who manufactured these, and whom I met in Sept 2001:
He recommend (1) the use of contact cement or rubber cement for construction, put on lightly, and (2) take great care to put these together and take your time. He had an excellent and patient modeler build cars for his layout.

Modeling PFE cars by Tim O'Connor
Intermountain did an R-40-10 reefer; you'll need a bunch of those for the 1940's. Red Caboose makes an R-30-12 and an R-30-9, you'll also want a bunch of those. Tichy makes the R-40-2/R-40-4 and that's another you'll want for the 1940's. (Build the Red Caboose kits first and then match the roofs of the Tichy to the Red Caboose -- the Tichy kits have a small error in the roof platforms.) You can use the Tichy underframe with a Red Caboose R-30-9 to build an R-40-9 too.
