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. 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!

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!
