One of the most overlooked, and yet common loads carried by North American railroads is finished wood products. This is where we are proud to introduce the HO Scale NSC 73’ Centerbeam Car! Over 20,000 examples of this car were produced by National Steel Car, between 1987 through the mid 2000s, with some car variations along the way.

Whenever you see a general merchandise freight pass by you, there’s a high probability that you will see at least four or more centerbeams mixed in. But have you taken notice of the roadnames/ownership of those cars? Centerbeams are unique in that they are owned by large class I railroads, leasing companies and smaller shortlines. The wood industry is that lucrative and our HO Scale 73’ NSC Centerbeam is no stranger to a wide variety of roadnames!
