ExactRail HO Scale: Thrall 54' Coil Car - NYC 'Patch'

The Thrall 54’ 'Coil Shield' Coil Car is a signature prototype like few others.

In 1992, Conrail purchased a unique “well” style coil gondola, and they assigned it the car class G52S. Through 1995, Conrail sought additional orders and ascribed G52T, G52U and G52V car classes. In total, Conrail purchased nearly 750 “coil shields.”

These coil cars are one of the most recognizable—and quite frankly, one of the coolest freight cars of the contemporary era.

ExactRail has meticulously recreated the Thrall 54’ “Coil Shield” Coil Car in HO Scale. With great attention, we have accurately captured the details of the prototype. From the complex, exposed brake appliances of the B-end platform, etched metal walks with appropriate tread pattern, and the intricate multi-piece framework of the coil hood, this car will impress.

CSX 'NYC Patch'

After the split of Conrail to CSX & Norfolk Southern, the collection of Thrall 54' CoilShields were also split. CSX patched over the CR and then applied NYC (New York Central) reporting marks to the cars that they scored. This was common with many pieces of equipment that joined CSX from Conrail.
