Atlas 50000183 N Scale Thrall 2743 Gondola (ex Gondola Connection) Coe Rail CRLE 3121
New Old Stock
The Thrall Car 2743 cubic foot gondola was introduced in 1995. This new 52' 6" interior length design was in response to the newly allowed increase in Gross Rail Loading (GRL) to 286,000 lbs (up from 263,000 lbs). This allowed an increase of the inside height from the previously standard 5'0" to a new standard of 5'6", giving it a 2,743 cubic foot capacity. Thrall produced over 6,700 of these from 1995 to 1999. The design resumed production under Trinityrail in 2005.
Prototypical scale height reflecting the new higher capacities standard.
