Walthers Rolling Stock Gold Line(R) 40' Ortner 100-Ton Open Aggregate Hopper Ready to Run 3-Pack
Walthers Part # 932-37072
HO scale, $44.98, sold out at Walthers
One of the most distinctive cars in service today, the Ortner 100-Ton
Aggregate Cars are built for rough service and heavy hauling.
Like other three-bay open hoppers, you'll find them hard at work moving
limestone, iron ore, gravel, sand and similar materials.
But what sets the Ortner apart from the pack is their unique appearance,
designed to increase carrying capacity and reduce costs.
With their big, square bodies that stand nearly 12' above the rails, they
have a look like no other rail car. The body measures just over 30' inside.
But to help carry the enormous load and reduce the possibility of damaging
the rails, the weight is spread out over a long 43' 10" frame. This leaves
large porches at both ends of the car, which are equipped with handrails
much like a locomotive. Brake equipment is easy to reach, and some owners
have used this extra space to install controls for air-operated discharge
doors which speed unloading.
This HO Scale Gold Line freight car comes fully assembled and includes
working knuckle couplers and free-rolling trucks with RP-25 metal wheelsets.
Limited-run three pack includes cars with three different roadnumbers.
