Scale Test Car
Part #MTL-121 00 080 N Scale Supply Price:
New: March 2008


This scale test car is painted black with gold ends and is lettered in black on the sides and black on the ends. It was built by Lake Erie Engineering Corporation in 1940. Charged with the responsibility of keeping all the track, truck, baggage and freight scales on their respective lines in perfect condition, the scale inspector’s arrival was often preceded by the appearance of the small scale test car. The scale test cars were always to be hauled just in front of the caboose. Immediately upon arrival at the terminal, they were set aside and subjected to a minimum of switching; under no circumstances were they to be used in switching other cars in the train.
