• Full Throttle's Bowser Buckler Trucks
This a very special 33' open, rib-side, two-bay hopper for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Zscale Monster Trains commissioned this run to sell solely on zscalemonster.com; this is a PRR MoW Hopper painted in Pennsy's "Campcar Yellow!" It's patterned after a prototype found at one of Pennsylvania's Historical Railroad Museums. The models were produced by 'Full Throttle'; 'Hay Brothers Garage' created the fantastic sand and gravel loads for them. The printing is simple, done in black, but the yellow color makes the car a stunner! This is how Pennsy painted all their MoW workers.

The Lehigh Valley Railroad (LV)  was built for the purpose of transporting anthracite coal. Known as the Route of the Black Diamond, it served New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York with coal, freight and a passenger system. Named in 1853, it grew by new construction and by consolidation with existing railroads. The early 1900's saw headquarters moved from Philadelphia to New York City and in 1918 the passenger terminus became PRR's Pennsylvania Station in New York City.  The LV, like so many other Railroads after WWII, began a steady decline in the face of trucking and oil heat for homes. Eventually the LV became part of Penn Central, and in 1976 it's properties were assumed by CONRAIL.

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (ACL) was an American railroad that existed between 1898 and July 1, 1967, when it merged with the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, its long-time rival, to form the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad. The company was headquartered in Jacksonville, FL (Wilmington, NC before 1961). The ACL bought the large Louisville and Nashville Railroad system on November 1, 1902, but kept operations separate for its entire life.  Though a great coastal freight hauler, the ACL was renowned for it's Royal Purple diesel fleet, and exquisite Eastern USA passenger service down into Florida.  After several more mergers and consolidations, the former ACL is now part of CSX Transportation, also headquartered in Jacksonville.

Painted black with white data, they represent the early CC&O Liveries used by Clinchfield all during the Steam to Diesel Era of Railroading.
This month,  June '14 ,  a brand-new FT Collector 2-pk. of Open 33' Ribside Hoppers!  In every Scale, the venerable  CLINCHFIELD  Railroad is a favorite of modelers all over the USA!  And no wonder, as the trackage ran through some of the most scenic backgrounds of our country.  The mountains and foothills of the Appalachians down to our Southern Coast was home to the  CLINCHFIELD , a very State-of-the-Arts railroad for it's time, featuring heavy haulers and manicured rail routes!  Several years ago FT produced a run of 33' Offset  CLINCHFIELD  Hoppers for Ztrack Magazine subscribers and here is the perfect adjunct to that issue...the 33' Ribside version, ready to roll!  This livery would have been seen on the  CLINCHFIELD  from the 1920's until they rusted-out by the early 1960's.  They lugged coal loads through the entire Steam to Diesel Era of Railroading.

The Delaware, Lackawanna & Western RR Company (DL&W or Lackawanna) connected Hoboken, NJ and the New York City area, to Great Lakes, Ontario and Erie, a distance of about 400 miles to the west. In between, DL&W served Utica, NY to the North, and the Anthracite Coal Fields of North East Pennsylvania. Incorperated in 1853, the DL&W was profitable during the first two decades of the twentieth century, but its margins were gradually hurt by declining traffic in coal, competition from the trucking industry, and high New Jersey taxes. In 1960, the DL&W merged with rival Erie Railroad to form Erie Lackawanna RR.

Stenciled with the "Coal Goes to War" motto during WW II and appeared on the tracks all through the "Steam to Diesel Era" of Railroading. All during it's long and famed history, "The Pennsy" set the standard for railroading in North America! PRR was so huge having merged with, or interests in, over 800 Railroad Companies that it's budget exceeded that of the United States Government! Hence, in support of America's efforts during WWII, PRR setenciled this Wartime sentiment on the sides of many freight cars. Never deleted, the railfans could observe the slogan well into the late 1900's.

The Colorado and Southern Railway (C&S, CS) began as the consolidation of bankrupt railroads in 1898. It operated independently until 1908 when the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad bought control. Serving CO, WY and NM the CS had a brisk freight business ballooning in the 1970's due to Powder River coal! Though running in Standard Gauge, the CS had four Narrow Gauge branch lines, using engines from former merger companies, which ran until the 1940's when heavy WWII traffic took precedence. The C&S ran a separate Line into Texas due to local incorporation laws. Full Throttle presents a pair of C&S hoppers with Powder River coal loads designed by Hay Brothers.

The INTERSTATE Railroad (INT), of southwest Virginia, extended from the Clinchfield RR and ran parallel to the N&W RR, L&N RR, and Southern RR at various points, but diversified, having many Lines and Spurs running into the mountains of the Kentucky border. The company still exists as a subsidiary of the Norfolk Southern Corporation, but is operated as an NS RR Line. A favorite of RR Hobbyists because of the magnificent mountainous scenery modeled, the NS has painted one of their "Predecessor" GE ES44AC engines, NS #8105, in the INTERSTATE diesel color scheme of orange, cream and gray, and it is known as the "Creamsicle!"  Full Throttle presents a pair of INTERSTATE twin hoppers, one still bearing WWII era sentiments, complete with Hay Bros. custom coal loads.

The Boston and Maine Railroad (B&M) offered freight and passenger service through most of New England and New York from 1836 through 1983. Though under control of J.P. Morgan's NYNH&H by 1910, anti-trust forces wrested it away and it reorganized in 1919. Decline of manufacturing in New England and the rise of trucking competition in the 1930's caused hard times for the B&M which filed for bankruptcy in 1970. Aggressive marketing and planning reversed this fate over the next ten years and in 1983 was purchased by  Guilford Transportation Industries which renamed as Pan Am Railways in 2006. A joint venture in 2009 with Norfolk Southern Railway (NS) formed the Pan American Southern (PAS) with service restored to the former B&M yard in Mechanicville, New York in 2012. Full Throttle brings you early and late liveries of B&M coalers with loads by Hay Brothers.

When the NORFOLK SOUTHERN (NS) finalized the merger of the Norfolk Western and Southern Railways, two great Coaling Railroads, it was left with thousands of remaining 2-bay hopper cars!  Instead of scrapping them, these very valuable haulers were sent to the paint shop, and recycled as an effective utilitarian fleet. These coalers were useful for years to come. Eventually, NS was to amass over half of CONRAIL's assets, and with CSX controlling the rest, they have a duopoly over all East-West freight rail traffic east of the Mississippi River! In an effort to create an End-to-End Railway System for North America, three times since November of 2015, the Canadian Pacific Railway offered to buy all outstanding shares of NS stock for excess of US $26 Billion, but NS refused the proposals. Here is a pair of NS 2-bay, Z-Scale, repaint hopper models by Full Throttle with loads by Hay Brothers.

The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad (DRGW), generally referred to as the Rio Grande, was a major origin of coal and mineral traffic, with a motto of "Through the Rockies, not around them."  The Rio Grande was the epitome of mountain railroading, operating the highest mainline rail line in the USA and ran famed routes through the Moffat Tunnel and the Royal Gorge.  In 1988, Rio Grande Industries, the company that controlled the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad purchased the Southern Pacific Railroad.  The combined company took the Southern Pacific (SP) name due to its name recognition among shippers.  By the early 1990s, the D&RGW became largely dependent on hauling the high-quality coal produced in the mine fields of Colorado and Utah.  In 1996 the D&RGW was sold and merged into the Union Pacific Railroad.
