Full Throttle FT-8021 CSX - B&O 100-Ton Rib-Side Hoppers | 2-Car Set

Cars in special agreement with Pennzee. Comes with Bowser roller bearing trucks and Hay Bros Garage coal loads. The fourth and final, offering in the CSXT Open 100-Ton Hopper SERIES! These were the State-of-the Art coal hoppers when CSX Transportation became it's own entity in the 1980's. After inheriting many, many 100-Tonners from all their mergers, an aggressive purchasing program ensued to create a most formidable coaling fleet! With the advent of Revolving Dumping these cars, today, remain a staple for hauling super-large quantities of coal to electric plants and other coal-burning facilities. Honoring the three integral Rail Lines (WM, B&O, C&O) forming the CSXT conglomerate, the reporting marks of each was kept as part of the identification of the older cars. Here are the 100-Ton mega-coalers previously owned by the Baltimore and Ohio Railway! They are representative of the last 60 years for the coal industry!

When CSX Transportation (CSXT), one of our four primary National rail lines, finally gained it's own identity in 1987, an energetic purchasing and repainting program began. Big 100-Ton hoppers were added to a whopping fleet acquired from all the mergers. As tribute to three main Railroads of the consolidation, CSX kept the reporting marks of each as part of the identification of the inherited cars! (WM, C&O, B&O)    

The Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) one of the oldest RRs in the USA, (1828-1987) served New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Chicago, St. Louis, MO, and points in between. It's motto was "Linking 13 Great States with the Nation." Absorbing innumerable Lines during the 20th Century, in 1963 the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway took financial control of the B&O and it's interests in the Western Maryland Railway. The three railroads were brought together as the Chessie System in 1973, CSX Corporation in 1980, and CSX Transportation in 1986.
