Beginning in 1977, Pacific Car and Foundry (PC&F) released a heavily insulated boxcar with internal, air-bag loading devices and 20" travel, sliding-sill under frame. These cars travel the country. Often originating from the Coors Brewery in Golden, CO., they are affectionately known as "Beer Cars" for the refreshing cargo they frequently carry.
By request from our customers! We are excited to announce 6 all new paint schemes on our HO Scale Beer Car. All schemes being offered are what we consider to be "close enough". The differences being anywhere from different ends, side sill or door size. While we strive at ExactRail to be as faithful to the prototype as we can, we realize that many of our products make a good representation of other items on the rails and are proud to offer these models exclusively from TrainLife.com.
About the Tropicana 1991 Repaint Paint Scheme:
In 1991 Tropicana acquired a group of second hand Pacific Car & Foundry (PC&F) built insulated boxcars from the Manufacturers Railway Co. These were re-painted and numbered from 2669-2749. In addition to repainting, a refrigeration unit was added to the underbody of the car. Major differences between our model and the prototype are different ends, side sill and narrower door. Our model makes a near match to the prototype and belongs in your modern juice train.
