Full Throttle Z Scale Canadian National 34' Woodside Reefer Set 2
A 34' woodside reefer for the Canadian National Railway. Road numbers CNR 46236 and CNR 46262. Especially suited for modest Z Scale layouts, this new FT car is the same size as the small FT hoppers! Equipped with Full Throttle couplers, trucks and metal wheel sets, a heavy weight has been added for flawless tracking.

From Full Throttle:
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.
. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed.
