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.

The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) was founded in 1846. Commonly referred to as the "Pennsy," the PRR was headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Pennsy, employing about 250,000 workers, set the standards for railroading in North America! PRR was so huge, controlling 10,000 miles of rail line, and having merged with or had interests in over 800 railroad companies, that it's budget exceeded that of the U.S. Government! In 1968, the Pennsylvania Railroad merged with rival, New York Central Railroad, forming Penn Central Transportation Company, and adding the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad in 1969. A series of unfortunate events forced the Penn Central into bankruptcy in 1970. The Penn Central system was transferred in 1976 to CONRAIL, which began earning a profit in 1981. The Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX Transportation split CONRAIL in 1991.

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.

Canada's largest and only transcontinental railway, Canadian National Railway Co. (CNR before 1960, CN after) always embroiled between nationalization and privatization, is today primarily a freight railroad headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, whose slogan is "North America's Railroad!" CN passenger service was assumed by Via Rail in 1978. Created after 1918, CNR was comprised of a myriad of bankrupt, federally owned railways, and after acquiring many more Lines as CN, was finally privatized in 1995. The next decade found CN purchasing Illinois Central and Wisconsin Central railways among other US Lines, and becoming a NAFTA north-south railway, exporting Canadian raw materials into the US heartland and beyond to Mexico through an alliance with Kansas City Southern (KCS) Railway. In 1999, CN and BNSF intended a merger, but were thwarted by protests from a slew of North American rail companies including Canadian Pacific and Union Pacific who applied political pressure, recalling "anti-trust" laws. CN has incorporated in the US as Grand Trunk Corp. for legal purposes, however operates entirely as CN, as can be seen in its locomotive and rail car repainting programs.

The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad (DRGW), " Through the Rockies," was a major origin of coal and mineral traffic, and the epitome of mountain railroading, operating the highest mainline rail line in the USA. In 1988, the Rio Grande, purchased the Southern Pacific Railroad. The unified company took the Southern Pacific name due to its recognition among shippers. By the early 1990s, the D&RGW became largely dependent on hauling high-quality coal from the mine fields of Colorado and Utah. In 1996, D&RGW was sold and merged into Union Pacific Railroad.

The Northern Pacific Railway (NP) operated in the Western USA along the Canadian border. By 1883 the main line ran all the way from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean, serving a large area including extensive trackage in the states of Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. Also, NP had international lines to Winnipeg, Manitoba and south eastern British Columbia, Canada. NP, together with the Great Northern RR, gained control of the CB&Q RR, thus access to Chicago, the central Middle West and Texas. Added was the SP&S RR, an important route through Washington State. The NP was among the first USA railroads to adopt widespread use of diesel power beginning with GM's “FTs” in 1944. In 1970, NP, GN, CB&Q and SP&S formed the Burlington Northern Railroad. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use.

The St. Louis Southwestern Railway (SSW), aka Cotton Belt, was organized in 1891 and ran on copius trackage from Illinois, down through Missouri and Arkansas, into Louisiana and eastern Texas. The Southern Pacific Company gained control in 1932, but ran Cotton Belt separately until 1992 when they consolidated. From 1959, Cotton Belt diesels were painted in SP's famous gray and red "bloody nose"scheme. In 1996, the Union Pacific RR acquired the Southern Pacific RR.

The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (GTP) was a historical Canadian transcontinental railway running from Winnipeg, Manitoba to the Pacific coast British Columbia. East of Winnipeg the line continued as the National Transcontinental Railway (NTR), running across northern Ontario and Quebec, and ending at New Brunswick. The Grand Trunk Railway (GTR) managed and operated the entire line. The GTPR advanced huge social benefits with local employment opportunities, a telegraph service, and freight, passenger and mail transportation. Today, the majority of the GTPR is still in use as Canadian National's main line from Winnipeg to Jasper. The GTPR's high construction standards, and the fact Yellowhead Pass has the best gradients of any railway crossing of the Continental Divide in North America gives the CN a competitive advantage in terms of fuel efficiency and the ability to haul tonnage. The Port of Prince Rupert has grown with less congestion than other West Coast ports, providing proximity to the great circle route from East Asia to North America, and a fast connection to the Midwestern United States along the former GTPR route.

Now controlled by CSX Corp., Fruit Growers Express (FGE) was an Armour Meats refrigerator car leasing Co., incorporated in 1920 and based in Alexandria, VA and Jacksonville, FL. C&EI, NH, and N&W became major stockholders. Originally serving the Eastern USA, in 1923 FGE and GN railway formed the Western Fruit Express to compete with Pacific Fruit Express and Santa Fe in the West! FGE expanded into the Midwest and Pacific Northwest USA via a partnership with the CB&Q railroad forming Burlington Refrigerator Express (BREX). All these consolidations, acquisitions and purchases led to thousands of reefer cars on hand and a vital enterprise of freight car repair and servicing. In 1928 FGE formed the National Car Co., a subsidiary to support the meat transportation market. The Alexandria, VA maintenance facility was closed down in 1994.

By 1882 the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) became the largest in the world having acquired or merged with more than 800 other RR Lines. In the 1920's it had tripled the traffic of either Union Pacific (UP) or Santa Fe (ATSF) and it's only rival was the New York Central (NYC) carrying about 75% of Pennsy's ton-miles. The PRR used the trade name: PENNSYLVANIA LINES to denote it's trackage West of Pittsburgh and Erie, PA, which extended up through Michigan and to the Western border of Illinois. It's Eastern arm was known as LINES EAST and eventually the combination of the two was trademarked as the "Pennsylvania Railroad" replacing "Pennsylvania System."Here's a nifty Dairy Reefer leased for use from the Union Refrigerator Transit Line(URTX) of Milwaukee, WI, boasting nearly 7,500 cars by 1940.

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!
