HO scale 52' 6" Mill Gondola

 

HO scale 52' 6" Mill Gondola

The re-re-return of a Canadian Classic!

This 52’6” mill gon was produced starting in 1943 and continuing through the 1950s for several Canadian railroads.

 

These cars and others almost identical to them were built in large numbers by National Steel Car (Hamilton) and Eastern Car Company (Trenton). Our mill gon was used in general service and travelled widely throughout the United States and Canada well into the 1980s. You can still find some in company service today!

 

Our model fully captures the details of the prototype car. Features include delicate Z-shaped (Zed/Zee) bracing or "Hat" channel ribs where appropriate, separate wire grab irons, positionable drop ends and ratchet style hand brakes.

 

Full underbody detail is of course included while a die-cast metal floor ensures good weight for trouble-free operation.The interior has not been neglected either; it includes full rivet and tie-down details. Three different 70-ton trucks – solid bearing, roller bearing and solid bearing side frames with roller bearing inserts – are all offered as appropriate. Trucks feature turned, free-rolling metal wheels. Our metal Macdonald-Cartier knuckle couplers are installed on each car at the factory.

 

Each six-pack includes all−new car numbers.
