What’s in there? A boxcar in DR livery, Era IV.
A set of single buffer beams is supplied.
The boxcar has a brakeman’s platform on one side.
No high voltage to be seen here.

The other side.
The doors on each side slide open.
The door slides between the wagon body and a guard rail. Works well. I wish there was a way to lock it, the doors keep sliding open when I pick up the boxcar.
On the inside, one expects a flat floor. PIKO obviously didn’t bother, and has the bogie mechanism on display. Who looks on the inside of these boxcars anyway?
As you can see, the brakeman’s platform is a separate piece which can be screwed onto the standard two-axle chassis. Clever engineering, PIKO.
The plastic wheels are 35mm, not the standard 30mm.
Not much to say really, just look at the pictures. What’s not to like?
