After WWII, USA Railroads were increasingly called upon to haul new and unique "modern" products over long distances. American Car and Foundry (ACF) designed a tank-type Cylindrical "Center Flow" covered hopper car. 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! Founded in 1909 and headquartered in IL, IMC Global was a mining and production company, which in 2004 merged with Cargill, Inc.'s crop nutrition division to form The Mosaic Co., devoted to crop nutrition. Here's an earlier and later IMC Cylindrical Hopper livery from Full Throttle.

The  Pittsburgh & West Virginia Railway  (PWV) operated in the Pittsburgh, PA and Wheeling, WV areas. It was originally built as a Pittsburgh extension of the Wabash Railroad, and earned autonomy in 1908. In 1931 it became part of the "Alphabet Route," an independent consortium of Rail Lines conceived to link the Midwest USA (Chicago, St. Louis, and Great Lakes ports) to the Northeast USA (Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and Boston), in order to compete with the larger Railroads (Erie, Pennsy, and New York Central) that had already established direct routes. The name "Alphabet Route" referred to the "alphabet soup" of initials used by members for their respective Rail Lines i.e.: Nickel Plate (NYC&StL), W&LE, P&WV, WM, RDG, CNJ, L&HR, and NYNH&H. Norfolk & Western Railway leased many of the Lines involved with the Alphabet Route in '64, and the P&WV was leased to the new spinoff Wheeling and Lake Erie Railway in 1990, just months before the N&W was merged into the Norfolk Southern Railway. The W&LE has trackage through Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania and leased CSX trackage after the Conrail splitup. W&LE lines interchange with three major Class I Railroads, CN, CSX and NS. Most 40's burnt orange paint schemes of the P&WV were repainted black during repairs after the early 50's, but some remained intact and could be seen through the 60's.

After being involved with Z Scale Railroading for a decade, in 1998, William Dean Wright, "Uncle Will," decided to become a Distributor for this enticing hobby.  Thus, Full Throttle was born.  Eventually, affiliations with PennZee, Freudenreich, and Father Nature led to many promotional, photographic and marketing pursuits.  Along the way it became necessary to create our own trucks and couplers, and "Will's Metal Wheels" were popularized! With friendships of Hay Bros. Garage and NZT, new products and body-styles are on the work bench, today.  Full Throttle is very grateful for all the support given by you, our patrons, and offers this nifty 15-Year "Anniversary" Twin-Hopper 4-pk. in celebration!  Thanks! Faithfully, Will

Here's a nifty supplement for you WM fans.  It's a split Collector's Pack containing one of the Gray MoW gravel carriers and one of the typical Red coalers.  Both were issued before, but this COL Pack has new reporting numbers, of course!  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 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 CSXT. Here’s a Special Edition Western Maryland, gray MoW with gravel and a typical red coaler from Full Throttle/PENNZEE  with custom loads by Hay Brothers!

One of the most popular Lines in model railroading is  Chesapeake and Ohio , the C&O !  FT  has produced Z Scale 70-ton Offset and Rib-Side Hoppers for Post WWII Era runners.  "Progress" was the new catch-word for this modernization period, and every facet of the C&O was brought up-to-date as it entered the futuristic "Diesel Age!"
