美国有限模型 HO scale Trinity covered hopper
一种现代的有盖料斗 suitable for cement and other high density lading is now available for modelers who like present day operations. The Trinity 3281 cubic feet, 2 bay, covered hopper is ubiquitous on the North American scene. Modelers have been asking for one for years. 美国有限模型 has finally met the need with an excellent offering of this car which can be found nation-wide in railroad and corporate reporting marks.

The Trinity 3281 cubic feet hopper followed the firm’s introduction of a 5161 cubic feet design for grain service in 1996. 用于水泥, 砂子等密集装载, this car only requires two hoppers instead of three on the grain car. The smaller size compensates for the greater density of the lading compared to grain. Loading is through three round roof hatches instead of the trough hatches found on the grain car.

American Limited spared no effort in providing a well detailed, easy running, model of this common car. It is a must-have for present day modelers because of its widespread use. 因为他们的细节部分而出名, this is American Limited’s first foray into offering complete rolling stock. 这辆车的模具是全新的. 和大多数高档车型一样, this car features photo-etched running boards with many separately applied details. Handrails and coupler cut bars are of a very fine cross section. 这个型号的特点是36英寸. turned metal wheels which make it very free-rolling. On a layout the car will roll on an imperceptible grade. 两个细节引人注目. The trucks are stenciled with the road number per modern practice and the couplers are scale size without trip pins. The dimensional data on each car, while similar, is specific to each owner. All lettering is crisp and clear. The warning label over a hopper on each side is correctly done in red. At 3.6 ounces, the car complies with National Model Railroad Association recommended weights. Using an NMRA template gauge and a Kadee coupler gauge, the wheels and coupler height check out to NMRA specifications.
     The samples reviewed were lettered CSXT 243392 and 243266. As with many products, Trinity Rail has modified the car in production over the years. Facing the car with the B (brake wheel) end to the left, the lower stiffening channel does not extend all the way to the ladder on the left in this corner on the versions operated by CSX and UP. 看到原型照片. The American Limited model has the stiffening channel extending to the ladder on all four corners. Review of photos reveals the same car built for some other users, 包括TILX, do have stiffening channels on all four corners. Review of many photos reveals that the roof walks, 作为交付, 是本地镀锌灰色的吗, rather than the basic body color. Modelers will want to paint the wheels brown or rust color, avoiding the treads and needle bearings, paint the bearing caps blue and then apply weathering to preference.

This new offering fills an important gap in commonly seen modern freight cars and is suitable for all regions. Since these cars usually travel in bunches, 甚至是整列火车, modelers will be pleased to find multiple car numbers in both railroad and private owner reporting marks.
