Z scale Full Throttle Hercules 51' Cylindrical Hopper Set 1. Road numbers SHPX 60302 and SHPX 60307. HERCULES , more than just a DuPont Chemical Co., was their Division employed in manufacturing munitions for USA military efforts! And as such was a very important entity in our history. Still is! Represented by the mythical strongman in his lion skins, the livery used on this HERCULES Cylindrical is striking and an eye-catcher for use on any American Rail Line! These models were manufactured with great details by Bowser Mfg., painted to a slight sheen and equipped with the new Bowser Roller Bearing trucks featuring super-gliding blackened metal wheels, and knuckle couplers.
Prototype information from the manufacturer:
ACF Center Flow Cylindricals. Due to many early mergers of railroad companies, ACF industries represented in most state of the Northern US , east of the Mississippi River. They are responsible for many innovative freight and passenger cars using modern on modern railroads. After WWII, USA railroads were increasingly called upon to haul new and unique, or modern products if you will over long distances. American Car & Foundry (ACF) designed a center flow tank type called the center flow covered hopper car. This was a freight car for the future, ready to transport sugar, cement, sand, salt fertilizers, many different grains, coke, starch feeds, chemicals and plastics.
