This is Bluford Shops 87122 PS 86'QD AutPrt Bx D&TS/2. Pullman-Standard 86' AutoParts quad-door boxcar, assembled. Detroit & Toledo Shore Line received this batch of cars from Greenville early in 1970. The D&TS was just 50 miles long linking Detroit with Toledo but was double tracked and handled a large volume of traffic. Grand Trunk Western and Norfolk & Western (formerly Nickel Plate) each owned a 50% interest in the line. N&W used it to reach Detroit and GTW used it to reach Toledo. It's position gave it a vital role in the movement of auto parts. In 1981, GTW bought N&W ’s share and merged the line into its system. These cars joined the GTW fleet, some remaining in this paint scheme for close to two decades.

Its key features are:
Accurate replicas of the prototypes
Fine paint and lettering
Swinging drawbar system with Accumate® knuckle couplers that allows operation on sharp layout curves
Etched-metal coupler walkovers
End railings for extra authenticity
Cushion draft gear enclosures
