Z Scale Full Throttle Alberta "Canadian Grainers" 51' Cylindrical Hopper Set

Road numbers ALNX 396218-Slave Lake, ALPX 628270- Eaglesham Cylindrical grain cars are one of Canada's best-known contributions to the North American railcar network. Over 19,000 covered cylindrical Government-sponsored hoppers, built by several railcar manufacturers, have been carrying Canadiangrain and products on rails since 1972. The brightest paint schemes adorning the cars belonged to the Canadian Wheat Board, Saskatchewan Grain Car Corporation and the province of Alberta. Assigned to CN or CP, as denoted by an 'N' or 'P' in their reporting marks, the cars stayed on their home rails for loading. Like other Larger Scale railcar model fabricators who operate their Cylindricals on tight radius track.
Full Throttle has adapted the colorful Canadian paint schemes to it's shorter three-outlet Z Scale cylindrical model, for easier management and performance on usually compact ZScale layouts.
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.
