ExactRail HO Scale: Trinity TRINCool 64' Reefer - Ph. III - Union Pacific 'ARMN - Patched'
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 - Patched' Paint Scheme:
Union Pacific's fleet of Trinity TRINCool reefers proved to be an attractive white canvas for graffiti artists. We have been told of stories of cars only hours old being "tagged". To combat the issue of the reporting marks frequently being covered by spray paint, Union Pacific started in t he mid 2020s to patch over the reporting marks and replace them high on the car side.
The replacement reporting marks on the car were done with a random mix of lettering styles. Some would be done in the original 'Helvetica style' lettering. Some would be in Futura. Others were in the classic UP lettering style. A few of the cars were done in a mix of lettering styles. Each of the 12 road numbers we are offering were matched to what was applied to that specific car as seen in our reference photos.
