Modern Freight Cars
Rolling Stock From The 1960s Through Today
- Railroading has been through some big changes in the past few decades and this book will help modelers make sense of it all. From unit trains of coal to double-stacks moving containers across the continent, Jeff Wilson explains how the modern equipment is used and informs modelers how to tell a covered hopper carrying grain from one full of plastic pellets.
- This book includes informative charts on railcar builders, spotting features, and the proportions fo car types that make up the North American freight car fleet. Photos and drawings make clear how modern braking and draft-gear cushioning devices work, and explain to modelers the appropriate eras for the rapidly changing face of rolling stock over the last half century.
