locked Smoky Mountain Model Works announces new HO car kit

Jim King

A model of the long-awaited 12-post PS 5277 cf boxcar is close at hand.  Pullman-Standard manufactured these exclusively for Southern Railway and the original Norfolk Southern starting in early 1973.  Models have never been offered.  Design is about 80% finished …only a few details, the brake system and final review remain.  Patterns will be printed in-house, thus eliminating quality issues, escalating prices and shipping delays experienced with SLA suppliers.


These will be limited run kits and only enough will be produced to fulfill paid-in-full-orders received by 8/31/2021.  To view details about this kit, please visit here:  https://smokymountainmodelworks.com/HO-SOU-NS-5277-box.html


Contact me off-list to ask questions, place an order, etc.  Depending on market response to these kits, other cars based on this design will be produced, including the waffle side version in single and double-door styles.
