Covered 51' Cylindrical Hoppers
TOLEDO, PEORIA and WESTERN
Roadnumbers TPW 17205 and 17208
Here's an unusual and stunning August 2013 FT Cylindrical Hopper offering for the Z Scale modeler, TP&W, a Rail Line still in operation! It's a modest-sized 51' TP&W ACF cylindrical hopper, well-suited to even small personal track plans! The TP&W is well-known throughout the Midwest, especially in Indiana and Illinois and around the Great Lakes region. Last year, FT offered the nifty green TPW 70-ton open hopper which was readily embraced, and this month, the salmon-colored TPW cylindrical hopper which, if juxtaposed, would provide a very stylish consist, indeed!
A pair of Covered 51' Cylindrical Hoppers for TOLEDO, PEORIA and WESTERN Railroad. The 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. The bodies are salmon in color as are the roofwalks, hatches, and brakewheels. The data is in white, immaculate, tiny and clean, and the TPW SPEED Logo appears boldly on the sides!
Only 40 of these 2-pks. are available, so order accordingly!
