Louisville & Nashville (L&N) ) in the striking “Original Dixie Line” scheme from 1959. These cars feature the classy L&N mineral red carbody with heap shields and with the “Dixie Line” lettering spelled out on the right side of the car. This is a DIFFERENT series than the series we offered in our first production run; this series represents L&N’s second order of cars delivered in 1959, whereas the first run was delivered in 1957. It is worth noting that this was the L&N standard coal hopper design, with a humongous fleet numbering 8,150 cars built between 1957 and 1961. While these cars were the backbone of L&N’s coal hauling operations, they were regularly seen offline in the South, Midwest, and Northeast. Our fine models in this 1959 scheme are available in twelve road numbers.
These models include ASF Ride Control plain bearing trucks, enterprise outlet gates, and miner handbrakes as found on the prototype cars. Don’t miss out on these beauties!
