Burlington Northern (BN) Ph 3 Black Double Rotary Delivery 1976+ PS4000 illustrates the same BN scheme as our other BN release, applied to a Phase 3 carbody, which was the 1970s “standard” scheme applied to BN coal hoppers.  These double rotary cars are necessary for many BN coal trains that had to go through a rotary dumper (otherwise the caboose or locomotives had to be uncoupled from the consist).  This scheme is a “Phase 3” car that includes the “Short B and Short A” configuration designated for the BN double rotary cars, and a slightly shorter carbody believe it or not!  Yes, we tooled this version.  These cars also have the “trapezoid” indentations on the carbody side panels typical of all 1975-1976 BN-ordered Pullman coal hoppers.  Available in 2 all-new road numbers for 2022!

Features for these coal hopper replicas include:

  • Dimensional accuracy – designed from Pullman-Standard plans and verified with field measurements
  • Highly correct “true to life” colors
  • “Hyper-Accurate” lettering including exact fonts and lettering placement
