- The Prototype
In late 1991, Norfolk Southern debuted the first two prototypes of its TOP GON® re-body program. Looking for a way to expand the capacity and the longevity of its coal car fleet, this program took in old hoppers, stripped them to the frame, and built an entirely new gondola body on top of that frame. With production starting in July of 1992, spanning multiple classes with multiple variations, NS' Roanoke East End Shops churned out over 18,000 of these cars, ending production in 1998. With almost 3,265 of class G-85R, G-86R and G-88R’s in service, this model represents one of NS' most recognizable freight cars.
- The Models
Our first freight car! We have been working hard on this model and look forward to delivering a first class scale model of this unique car. From day one, our 3D engineering models were accurately designed from blueprints and field measurements. Furthermore, literally thousands of photographs have been analyzed to ensure our printing is extremely accurate, with specific attention given to the car class. (Please note artwork representation is pre-production and changes may occur.)
