In the mid-1990’s, Thrall Car Manufacturing introduced their 42’ coil car. This car shared many traits common to other Thrall built coil steel cars including the basic body construction and jack pad design. The two major differences were the shorter car length and use of a single hood instead of two.
In 2001, Trinity purchased Thrall Car Manufacturing and continued building the 42’ Coil Car until 2012. Trinity relocated the end handrails from the ends of the hood to the ends of the car.
These cars are often seen in singles or small groups roaming North America.
