From Full Throttle:
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.
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. 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!
