You have all seen them on the rails across the country, now you will be able to add them to your layout! These 64′ Trinity Built Modern Reefer cars can be seen in Unit Trains or in mixed manifest freights all over the US.
– The Prototype
Built by Trinity Rail starting in late 2003, the unique 64′ Reefer Box Car was designed for increased capacity, shipping protection, and loading/unloading efficiency. Large enough to fit the equivalent of four 53′ truck trailer contents, these excess height, plate ‘F’ cars have given new life to the once flourishing refrigerated movement of produce and other perishable goods.
– Prototype Service (1993+)
With 1,500 of these massive cars in service, the 64′ Reefers have literally taken tens of thousands of truck trailers off the highways, paving the way for lower-emissions and increased capacity handling. Furthermore, Railex Corporation has begun shipping produce in solid unit trains from their locations in Washington, California, and New York.
BLMA models is always innovative in the products that they choose to produce. This one is no exception! The long awaited release of this car is now closer then ever. As the first 64′ Reefers ever produced in any scale, these fine-scale models replicate the huge, modern appearance of the prototype – complete with end platform detail, correct printing, and lots of other fine-scale detail.
But the thing we like most about this release is that Craig kept the price reasonable! With a retail price of $29.95 for the HO model and $24.99 for the N Scale model we will be able to offer these cars at a great price to you!
The PRE-ORDER cut off date for these models is September, 15th 2010
