In the days of railroad-operated passenger trains mail and express shipments handled in baggage, RPO and express boxcars was big business. One of the more unique commodities hauled on passenger trains was horses. In the 1920s heavyweight horse cars were purchased by several lines to haul racehorses and other high-value equines. Features of these cars included end doors and three side baggage doors. Inside movable partitions could be arranged to fit the load. Thanks to their unique doors and partitions, later in their lives these cars also handled theatrical props, circus animals and autos and many lasted into the 1960s. This Micro-Trains N Scale car is based on a prototype built by ACF. It comes equipped with appropriate six-wheel trucks and Magne-Matic(R) knuckle couplers.
