For many years, the two-axle boxcars with a wooden superstructure were indispensable on the Rhaetian Railroad network. Even if they have currently been replaced by newer cars, several of them are still preserved including the type K 1 with car number 5563 immaculately restored and painted in the original gray. This car is often used to transport baggage and bicycles in historic trains with suitable passenger cars– pulled mostly by one of the Crocodiles or a steam locomotive.
This is a model of a Rhaetian Railroad type K 1 two-axle boxcar. The paint scheme and lettering are prototypical as an historic museum car as it still currently exists. The car has many separately applied details and sliding doors on the sides that can be opened. Length over the buffers 39 cm / 15-3/8".
This car is still currently in use in historic scheduled trains with the Crocodile.
