Kusan K-Series M-K-T Boxcar Factory Error
Documented on this page is an example of a Kusan factory error.
In the photo above are two yellow Kusan M-K-T boxcars. The one on the left is fully stamped with "The Katy Serves the Southwest Well." The boxcar on the right has part of the same stamp missing - "The" before Katy, "S" in Serves and "Sou" in Southwest.
Here are the other sides of the same two boxcars, that help to explain what happened. Notice that the same letters are missing from the stamping on both cars because the door is molded open on this side. Apparently, the stamping on this side was used on the other side of the factory error boxcar by mistake.
