3462 Automatic Refrigerator Car (7/OB)


Product Description

 Condition:  7           Original Box:  7+          Year:  1947


Up for sale is the early version of this ever so popular Postwar operating car, the 3462  Refrigerated Milk car.  It comes complete with an original Art Deco box and its original liner, original 3462-67 instructions, the early and correct 3462-70 milk can box (with only 3462 referenced and not the 3472) plus seven magnetic milk cans and a 3462P unloading platform. This freight car has been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, tested and all functionality works properly.
The car is in very nice condition with very little evidence of use on the body and very strong heat-stamped lettering.  There are only a few paint chips and no other flaws anywhere on the car. The metal frame, trucks and couplers are also very nice without a hint of rust and absolutely little to no use.
Finally, the original box is still pretty solid and complete with all original flaps and does not even show soiling due to age. The small 3462-70 milk can box is original and has all flaps on one end, none on the other and the seven milk cans are enclosed in the box appear to be original. The platform is in nice condition with only a few contact marks, a repainted railing and a reproduction metal tray.  Lastly, the instructions are  strong showing almost no signs of use.
