Description

MTH "027" B&O Flatcar with Jeep Crate Load

The origins of the world-famous “Jeep” date back to 1940, when the United States Government (preparing for possible involvement in the war in Europe) requested bids for a prototype four-wheel-drive reconnaissance car. The first prototype was built by the American Bantam Car Company in Butler, PA, near Pittsburgh. To build a mass-production version, American Bantam, Willys-Overland and Ford were contracted to build thousands of these vehicles, and they had long service lines. Offered in Pennsylvania and B&O rail lines, and as a set of both.

This is the one-car B&O option. All cars & artwork shown are pre-production, actual models may differ.
