Four road numbers available. The PRR built 750 of these cars in 1919. Most were converted from the wooden sides to steel sides, so this SSA model represents an as-built model. The built date on the model is 7-19. Couplers are Walthers ProtoMax HO-scale ones. The interior bottom and long sides of these cars have simulated wooden boards with nail holes. The car is quite heavy, at 8 ounces (228g).
