Description

When the Norfolk Southern (NS) finalized the merger of the Norfolk Western and Southern Railways, two great Coaling Railroads, it was left with thousands of remaining 2-bay hopper cars! Instead of scrapping them, these very valuable haulers were sent to the paint shop, and recycled as an effective utilitarian fleet. These coalers were useful for years to come. Eventually, the Norfolk Southern was to amass over half of Conrail's assets, and with CSX controlling the rest, they have a duopoly over all East-West freight rail traffic east of the Mississippi River! In an effort to create an End-to-End Railway System for North America, three times since November of 2015, the Canadian Pacific Railway offered to buy all outstanding shares of NS stock for excess of US $26 Billion, but NS refused the proposals.

Each car features custom coal loads from Hay Brothers Garage
New releases are equipped with Full Throttle's own trucks, metal wheels, and knuckle couplers
