Branch Line Models Atlantic Coast Line Gondolas

Manufacturer:Branch Line Models
Road Name:Atlantic Coast Line
Prototype Class:GT
Product Type:Craftsman Kit
40-foot composite, 50-ton car. This was a wood craftsman kit with molded ends and Enhorning decals with a photo of the completed model to aid your lettering included. A complicated kit to build. Trucks are from Pacific Rail Shops with replacement metal wheels and Kadee #802 couplers. Putting in a load of Chooch gears brought this wood car up to 4-1/2 ounces. Some extra underbody details were added. The Atlantic Coast Line only had 141 of these GT cars. They were used as coal cars, thus the reinforcing with the top cords.
