The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (ATSF) or Santa Fe was one of the largest railroads in the USA, serving the States of AZ, CA, CO, IL, IA, KS, LA, MO, NE, NM, OK, and TX. An innovator in Modal Transportation, ATSF operated from 1859 until 1996 when it merged with the Burlington Northern Railroad to form Burlington Northern and Santa Fe, the BNSF Railway. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, our Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed. Full Throttle brings Z Scale a small, renovated 34' freight/reefer/ice car which would find use on the Railroads into the early diesel era!

Great Northern Railway was a colorful transcontinental Rail Line (1857-1970) which ran from Chicago northward along the USA/Canada border, serving both nations, and to Washington, Oregon and California on our West Coast. Its famous herald was of a mountain goat within a circle. It eventually merged with NP, CB&Q, and SP&S to form the Burlington Northern Railroad until 1996 when the BN merged with ATSF to become BNSF. At the turn of the 19th Century, in the throes of America's Industrial Revolution, Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel flooring, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed.

Pacific Fruit Express (PFE), at one time the largest refrigerator car leasing Company in the world, began operation in 1907 with a fleet of 6,600 reefers built by American Car and Foundry as a joint venture between the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, our railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed. The Southern Pacific Railroad (SP) was founded in 1865, later acquiring the Central Pacific RR by lease. The SP, a major USA railroad by 1900, incorporated many small Southern, Western and even Mexican Lines. By 1929 the SP/T&NO was huge, not including it's Cotton Belt Line, whose purchase of the Golden State Route in 1980 doubled it's size! In 1988 the SP was absorbed by Denver and Rio Grande but kept it's name, then serving virtually the entire Southwestern USA! In 1996 the SP became part of the Union Pacific Railroad.

The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) is one of the oldest RRs in the USA, created because the city of Baltimore, MD wanted to compete with the Erie Canal! It's dates of operation were from 1828-1987 and it served New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Chicago, St. Louis, MO, and points in between. It's motto, "Linking 13 Great States with the Nation" was appropriate for a railroad that first carried Eastern goods and passengers into our West. The B&O absorbed innumerable Lines during the 20th Century but in 1963 the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway took financial control of the B&O and it's interests in the Weatern Maryland Railway. The three railroads were brought together as the Chessie System in 1973. The WM and B&O merged in 1976. The Seaboard Coast Line, which included the L&N, Clinchfield, and Georgia railroads, combined with the Chessie System in 1980 to form the CSX Corporation which officially became CSX Transportation in 1986. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, our Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed.

The Western Pacific Railroad (WP) was formed in 1903 as an attempt to break the near-monopoly the Southern Pacific Railroad claimed into northern California. WP's Feather River Route competed with SP for rail traffic between Salt Lake City, UT and Oakland, CA for nearly 80 years. In 1983 the Western Pacific was acquired by the Union Pacific Railroad. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, our Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed. Full Throttle brings Z Scale a small, renovated 34' freight/reefer/ice car which would find use on the Railroads into the early diesel era!
By the end of the 19th Century, the industrial revolution of the USA was in full swing: textile mills, food processing, medicine, transportation, and of course, steel. But, as the country progressed into the 20th Century, what were railroads to do with the abundant railcars left over from earlier times? The invention of the one-piece, cast side-frame Bettendorf truck with its integral journal boxes was a huge step forward. Truss rods were eliminated as heavier steel under-frames came into widespread use. And, by the 1930s, hand brakes would give way to modern air-brake systems.
Full Throttle brings a nifty new car style to the Z Scale hobby. We've taken the "old-timey" woodside reefers introduced by Father Nature and performed the same refurbishing that railroads applied, to extend the usefulness of these dated cars. We've (hypothetically) upgraded the truss rod frame with a steel frame, and replaced Archbar or Andrews trucks to newer Bettendorf types. These venerable and useful cars would be employed in freight or reefer/ice operation through WWII and into the early diesel era, especially on short lines and spurs. Here's a splendid small freight car for your Z Scale action!
