This is an HO Scale (1/87) model of a Chicago Transit Authority 4000 series "Plushie" steel rapid transit car built by Cincinnati Car Company between 1922 and 1924 for the CER/CRT. This model specifically represents the 4000 series cars following rebuilding in the early-1950s by the CTA. The 4000's in this configuration were in revenue service from the 1950s to 1973 and work train service for a number of years afterwards. This version of the Plushie features the gasketed windows on the doors, but with standard as-built end windows and upper sash windows. This car also features conductors door controls on the no. 2 end.
This listing is for the shell. Also available in my shop is the underbody and trucks for the shell.
