...a box of parts from Tangent, including trucks and wheels, so that you can build your own car to your specifications!
These cars hit America's rails in 1967-68 and rode them for decades.
The Tangent Scale Models HO scale PS-1 “Mini-Hy Cube” Boxcar replica was designed and tooled in USA, and the plastic parts were produced in USA. It features a prototypical “slight peak” roof, separate underframe brake components with wire piping, narrow ladders and sill steps, and “see-through” crossover platforms. These replicas include the “near-scale” draft gear that has been standard on all recent Tangent releases, which includes the “side key” detail with Kadee all-metal couplers. Detailed “trombone style” coupler lift bars are also present on our replicas with one of two styles to match the prototype. Finally, the models are equipped with the correct Tangent Barber S-2-A 70-ton roller bearing trucks and 33” CNC-machined wheelsets.
