Hi everyone my first post. After reading the forum I was able to restore a 2018 Steam Locomotive that runs and looks great.To complete 1956 five-car freight set 1555WS I need the 6464-400 Boxcar.

Question:
Is the 1996 B&O 6464-400 the same as the 1956 6464400? The car is much longer than my other boxcars (x6014, x3464, 3474).

Also what is a Type 4 and why is one $40 and the other $200? pics from eBay:

I don't know if it is the same, it should be as it is a reissue.

I will say with confidence the two cars interchange perfectly. I ran into the same problem with the 6464-150 MoPac Eagle box car and did exactly what you're thinking. I do have a couple 6464 series cars and the size is correct. The 6464400 you're referring to is the same size. 6464's are larger (10.5 vs 8 inches) compared to most other PW cars. The x6014 is an example of the smaller non-scale cars while 6464's are close to proper scale. Hope that helps.
