ExactRail HO Scale: Trinity TRINCool 64' Reefer - Ph. III - Union Pacific 'ARMN - 2005 As Delivered'
With bold symmetry and modern aesthetics, few pieces of rolling stock communicate 'contemporary' as strongly as the Trinity TRINCool 64' reefer!
The modern reefer is a contemporary vindication for the perishable trade of yore when railroads moved carloads of perishable traffic by the thousands. Speaking to this heritage, the ARMN reporting marks have reference to American Refrigerator Transit, a refrigerator car line formed in 1881 via a joint venture between the Missouri Pacific and Wabash Railroads. Now in the care of the Union Pacific, AMRN reefers are often seen in hot schedule Q trains, which is the UP's designation for premium manifest traffic.
ExactRail is proud to offer the fifth release of our Trinity 64' TRINCool Reefers! Replete with detail, ExactRail's modern reefer includes separately applied release valve rods, the safety chain on the A-end platform, reporting marks on the truck sides frames, etched metal filler caps, fuel tank gauge with pad printed read-out, separately applied and painted temperature box, and precision micro-tooled huck bolts. It also features colors and lettering styles which are the most accurately rendered.
About the Union Pacific 'ARMN - 2005 As Delivered' Paint Scheme:
In the early 2000s, Union Pacific was needing to replace their aging reefer fleet. Trinity began delivering modern repleacements starting in 2003 with 500 of the Phase I TRINCool 64' Reefer. The next phase of 500 more cars built from late 2004 to mid 2005. This phase as well as the third phase of 500 more cars built in late 2005 had a minor change from the original cars. This change was from side ladders towards the B-end of the car to four grab irons.
For our fifth release of our Trinity TRINCool 64' Reefers, we are offering 12 more, all new numbers from the phase III delivery. Add these to your modern era railroad today.
