X26 Series Box Car Information for Modelers

In HO scale, the X26 and X26C box car is available as a resin kit from Funaro & Camerlengo. Several versions are available for each of the classes, and several door options are available for each of those. Pairing road numbers with these extensive options can be tricky.

Kits have also been offered by Tichy, Westerfield, and Sunshine (out of business).

Mount Vernon Shops offers decals for both the X26 and X26c.

Photos of models cannot be trusted for legitimate road numbers, but photos of completed models are included for illustration purposes.
