The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers, H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. August 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this phhoto recently, at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers, H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
Seen here parked on the club layout, is an Athearn model of Grand Trunk Western Railroad, quadruple door 86 foot Hi Cube box car.
These large and very specialized box cars, are used mainly in the automobile manufacturing industry, and are used primarily for carrying large automobile and truck parts.
The GTW served the automobile plants in the city of Detroit Michigan and the surrounding towns.
