UTLX “Hercules Powder” 1949+ has a black-painted carbody with typical UTLX graphics from the post-war period. This car is leased to Hercules for shipping of various chemicals. While Hercules originally produced munitions powders, aka “gunpowder,” it eventually provided many chemicals from plants all over the USA, including but not limited to acetone, cotton cellulose, rosins (for paper stiffening), gums, and turpentine. Our HO replica includes accurate yellow stenciling for “Hercules Power Company, Wilmington Delaware” on the side of the car. This model is complete with the classic image of Roman god Hercules on the side. Check out the detail on our Hercules stenciling! Our Hercules Powder cars come with an era-correct AB-brake system, and these stunners are available in four road numbers.
