Kris Rock Island Boxcars

The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad was more commonly known as the Rock Island Line. Its routes stretched from the American midwest down to the Gulf coast. Variations noted are from the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains. There is also a Rock Island stock car made for the Toy Train Operating Society.
