We are happy to announce the unique B&O Canstock car. The Canstock car was designed to improve the loading and transport of coiled steel used to make cans. Regular boxcars with the door in the center could only load 6 coils without getting the forklift stuck inside. With the doors being offset, the forklift could load the last two coils by driving straight in/out of the door opening making the capacity 8 coils instead of 6. This design allowed a more efficient use of space in the car and brought the load weight closer to the capacity of the car. As built, the cars had a fiberglass roof panel installed on the end opposite the door to allow some light in the car. Later, when cars were shopped starting in the Chessie Era, that roof panel was changed out to a regular metal panel like the rest of the roof. While built for an Eastern road, these cars could be found all over the US wherever a cannery was nearby. 

Our model will include the different roof options and even a change in doors for later era rebuilds. Our usual attention to detail with crisp molding and sharp paint schemes will make our newest signature car stand out. The models will also include body mounted couplers, etched metal end walk ways and FVM metal wheels. We will start with three paint variations - the original B&O with large "Canstock Car" lettering, A Chessie System scheme and the modern CSX scheme.

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
