Z Scale Pennsylvania Railroad
These 33’ twin bay hoppers with rib sides are freight car red with white lettering and run on Bettendorf trucks. Belonging to Pennsylvania’s GLA-class of twin-bay hoppers, these 50-ton cars were used exclusively for coal. Built in 1907, and rebuilt several times after, they continued in service through the 1950s before being scrapped. These cars featured a motivational wartime message, “Coal Goes to War,” indicating the importance of that natural resource to national security.
