Z Scale Full Throttle CUMBERLAND 51' Cylindrical Hopper Set

The chemical companies across America couldn't wait for a fleet of cylindrical covered hoppers to haul their products throughout the nation! CUMBERLAND CHEMICAL! Turns out ACF designed a gorgeous prototype livery for this company that specialized in Vinyl Plastics! These cars add a striking accent to any layout being represented across the breadth of our country!

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.

In response, American Car and Foundry (ACF) designed a tank-type "Center-Flow" covered hopper car. Here was a "Freight Car for the Future,"ready to transport sugar, cement, sand, salt, fertilizers, many types of grains, coke, starch, feeds, chemicals and plastics!
