Developed by Norfolk and Western back in the 1960's, it quickly became a favorite of many Railroad Coaling Lines. As locomotives grew ever larger, and when used in tandems, huge amounts of coal could be delivered by long consists of these hoppers to Mills and Power Plants across the country! Our first FT /PZ Issue was used to haul coal for the Pennsylvania Power and Light Company. The PP&L had these hoppers made from Non-Rust metal, which they would not paint. Instead, the cars grew a dark brown skin which required very little maintenance. Only the lettering needed touch-ups, patching or repainting. On this Premier Special Edition, limited quantity 4-pk., you will find Reddy Kilowatt, and surrounded by a "heart," a map of Eastern PA counties, to which PP&L supplied seemingly endless amounts of electricity!

The Western Maryland Railway (WM) operated in Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, running through some of the most scenic vistas in the USA. It was primarily a coal hauling and freight railroad, with a small passenger train operation. The lumber trade was also important to the WM and it's fast freight service was appreciated by it's clients. In 1964, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) jointly filed for permission to acquire control of the Western Maryland and it became part of the Chessie System which, eventually in 1989, became part of CSX Transportation. A Special Edition, from Full Throttle/PENNZEE , painted in gray and used for stones or gravel with custom loads by Hay Brothers! In the late 1990s PENNZEE  invested in a wonderful tool to create these magnificent 100-Ton Hoppers!  Full Throttle leased the molds and created a fistful of the 100-Tonners for the Z Scale enthusiast.  Eventually, the PZ 100-Ton Hopper molds were relegated to the back shelf.  Alas!  But, in 2014 via a special arrangement with PENNZEE , these important, historical, ubiquitous, game-changing haulers were offered once again by FT  for the Z Scale Hobbyist!

Many myths abound concerning the "Yellow Dot" on the large Pennsy open hoppers! The H43s were the last and largest-capacity production class group of open hoppers still using 33" wheels introduced by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Many of Pennsy's 7,500 H43s were fabricated at the Sam Rea Shops in Holidaysburg, PA and another 4,000 were added to the fleet by Penn Central RR, later. The basic design became "standard," had riveted side stakes, and throughout the country, almost 50,000 very similar cars were built by 1978. Pennsy H43s wore a large "Yellow Disc" painted on at the shop, dedicating the car to Unit Train Service for optimum utilization and preventing general interchange use. The "Yellow Ball" was simply a convenience to walking car checkers for yard inventory and assembling unit coal train consists. No PRR H43s were built without the "Yellow Dot" and no other PRR Classes had it.

Designed in 1960 by the N&W as the H-11 class, eventually the height was raised to 12' 3", giving it 3433 cubic feet and a weight capacity of 90-100 tons. Over 130,000 were built by Pullman, Greenville, and Trinity, with Bethlehem Steel and ACF supplying prefab kits to many railroads. The Delaware and Hudson Railway (D&H) is our country's oldest still-surviving transportation company operating for three centuries now. Since 1991 it has been a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Originating in 1823 as a canal, the D&H was always known as "The Bridge" connecting PA and NY to Canada. The D&H system came together through takeovers of smaller railroads, and Pennsylvania anthracite coal, the major commodity throughout the Steam to Diesel era while gaining some renown for passenger service. Historically aided by the NYCRR, when Penn Central failed in the 1970's the government gave D&H broader trackage rights, even over Conrail, and operations extended southward into New Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., as well as westward into the Great Lakes. In 1981, Guilford Transportation took the helm and finally the CPR bought and merged the D&H into it's vast system.
