WALTHERS 920-54083: Proto 2000 HO Scale 52'-6" Drop End Mill Gondola w/Large Gear Load, RTR - Patapsco & Black Rivers PBR #115
SOLD OUT & DISCONTINUED BY WALTHERS:
Introduced in 1940, these 70-ton capacity cars were designed to haul structural steel, and had drop ends to accommodate loads exceeding the interior length. In service, the cars were put to work handling steel, machinery, pipe, lumber, auto frames, coal, stone and similar loads. Gondolas led hard lives, but some remained in service until the 1980's.
A great addition to your freight car fleet, the car includes a realistic large gear load, formed and painted wire grab irons, pre-assembled under body detail and screw-mount coupler pocket covers. Like the prototype, the ends can be positioned up or down.
