2022 RailKing O Gauge Operating Boxcars Announced

April 5, 2022 - M.T.H. Electric Trains will be releasing two different RailKing O Gauge operating boxcars, each in four select liveries in 2022. Each of these unique schemes will be available in limited production quantities and will begin shipping to M.T.H. Authorized Retailers in September 2022.

Both cars are based on the 40’ 1930s steel box car so familiar to model railroaders. Wood box cars, which were built into the World War I era, and early steel cars were largely non-standardized, with details varying from railroad to railroad. The move toward standardization began with American Railway Association (ARA) designs of 1923 and 1932. It culminated in the 1937 AAR boxcar, which was adopted by railroads from coast to coast and built in the tens of thousands. (The AAR (American Association of Railroads) was and still is the successor to the ARA.)

The 40' box car with blinking LEDs features bright, flashing LED lights on both sides of this car spaced behind the printed railroad cross buck touting one of railroading's most important safety message! Each LED flashes alternately, just like a real railroad cross buck and is sure to catch the attention of all who see it on your own O Gauge model railroad. Completely assembled and ready-to-run. Just put it on the track and enjoy the action.

Our other model allows you to monitor your track power its operating power meter. The back-lit meter will sense your AC track voltage, providing a great way to determine track voltage, bad track connections and dirty track sections.

High quality, traditionally sized RailKing Freight Cars provide detailed bodies and colorful paint schemes for the O Gauge railroader. MTH makes an enormous variety of RailKing Freight Cars, including many different car types and roadnames. No matter what era or part of the country you are modeling, RailKing is sure to have something for you.

Check out each of the schemes in the list on the left.
