2016 Commemorative Car

Road number is 3516, for the 35th car in the series and the year 2016. The car is a Lionel American Flyer Chicago & North Western flat car, that includes 18 pallets of plastic refractories as a load, headed to a steel mill for relining of the soaking pits (or some other industrial usage). Soaking pits were used by steel mills from the 1920s through 1975. Pallets are decorated for the Chicago-based Plibrico Co. Plibrico invented clay-based refractories around the turn of last century and was a major supplier of these materials. Pallets are scale and will be held in place by "heavy duty cargo netting". Additional sets can be ordered, either decorated or undecorated. The cars and/or extra pallets can be ordered now as they are in stock as of late 2016. Active NASG membership required.
