SOUTHERN PACIFIC MOW WATER CAR

Albrae Models is pleased to announce Southern Pacific Maintenance of Way water cars in HO scale brass. SP maintained sets of these water cars at strategic locations around the railroad. Generally spotted on sidings near the various mountain passes Espee crossed, the water cars were maintained for Fire Fighting use along the right-of-way and in tunnels. Although parked on sidings during much of the year, typically they were cycled back to the railroad’s shops each winter for inspection and any necessary servicing. This type of movement provides the modeler a good reason to include water cars in the occasional train. 

Our HO scale models will represent the car’s appearance with either as-built wood plank walkways, or later-fitted steel grate walkways. Quantities are limited to only 200 models total: 40 of each SKU number, and 10 of each SKU type in unpainted brass!
