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 Canadian grain 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 ACF cylindrical model, for easier management and performance on usually compact Z Scale layouts.
These models have been equipped with our Full Throttle couplers, trucks and metal wheelsets. The 2-pk. carries two new unique Reporting Numbers!
