This month's offering is yet another paying homage to the old TYCO "brown box" line of freight cars, which brought FUN into model railroading!
Due to many early mergers of RR Co.s, ACF Industries is represented in most States of the Northern US, east of the Mississippi River. They are responsible for many innovative Freight and Passenger cars used in modern railroading. After WWII, USA Railroads were increasingly called upon to haul new and unique “modern” products over long distances. In response, American Car and Foundry (ACF) designed a tank-type covered hopper car. The cylindrical shape allowed a better weight/volume ratio, plus the elimination of interior ledges, combined with hatches and outlets placed along a center-line, led to ACF's trademark "Center Flow" hoppers! Through the 1960's the “cylindricals” became omnipresent on our Nation’s RR tracks, with many styles of hatches and outlets devised according to needs. Because the cars were compartmented, various loads could be carried in a single unit and some construction with aluminum reduced weight further. Here was a "Freight Car for the Future," ready to transport sugar, cement, sand, salt, fertilizers, many types of grains, coke, starch, feeds, chemicals and plastics!

At the turn of the 19th century, Wyandotte, Michigan, became a major hub in the chemical production industry, possible because of the many salt mines deep below the city. Captain John Baptiste Ford, used the salt to create soda ash, which in turn was used to produce plate glass. In 1893, he formed Michigan Alkali Company, which manufactured baking soda, soda ash and lye. The company, later renamed Wyandotte Chemicals Co., went on to make a variety of soaps and cleaners, and eventually in 1969, became part of BASF, the largest investment a German company had ever made in the USA.

This month's offering is yet another paying homage to the old TYCO "brown box" line of freight cars, which brought FUN into model railroading!
Early in the 1900's two brothers from Sioux Falls, SD, Henry and James Fenn, one a bank clerk and the other a shoe salesman, tested their entrepreneurship by opening a confectionary specializing in their own ice cream and soda pop. This soon expanded into the creation of high-grade candy bars, the popular "WALNUT CRUSH," "BUTTER BRICKLE" and "BIG BOGIE!" Using the best ingredients possible their celebrity swelled, so began shipping country-wide, and in 1951 opening another plant inCalifornia. The sons joined up and kept the company running until the 1970's when, instead of using substitutes, the costs of "real" quality ingredients became too expensive to continue production. FENN BROS. CONFECTIONS was sold off and the legend of "BIG BOGIE" bars, history.

In 1933, Frank Martoccio changed the name of his Confectionery Co. to Hollywood Brands moving to Centralia, IL in 1938. Using only the best ingredients he invented fluffy nougat and a synthetic coating for candy bars which he used on his white "ZERO" bars to keep them from melting in hot weather. His "Hollywood" bars were a delicious combination of dark chocolate, carmel, nougat and peanuts. In 1967 Hollywood Brands was sold to Consolidated Foods, later Sara Lee.
Another fun addition in the tradition of the old TYCO "Brown Box" series, Full Throttle presents a Hollywood Cylindrical Hopper!
