ExactRail HO Scale: Johnstown America AutoFlood II Coal Hopper - UCEX - ''Military Veteran''
In 2015, Ameren Missouri repainted a single car from its fleet of 3463 coal hoppers into a unique paint scheme to honor military veterans. This car bears a patriotic paint scheme with each emblem of America’s military branches. In addition to these emblems, Ameren commemorates the Vietnam War with its 50th anniversary emblem. ExactRail, in cooperation with Ameren, is proud to offer a limited release replica of this important paint scheme! Moreover, we applaud Ameren’s social consciousness as it honors America’s veterans.
UCEX 2015 “Military Veteran” hopper was developed in partnership with the Ameren Corporation. We estimate that this model features the most complex artwork ever applied to an HO Scale freight car. The artwork files for our model are the actual lettering files and color swatches for Ameren prototype. But more than being a highly accurate replica, this model honors America’s veterans.
Ameren is a Fortune 500 company that powers the quality of life for 900,000 natural gas customers and 2.4 million electric customers. The name ‘Ameren’ is a combination of the words American and Energy. Ameren is the largest electric power provider in Missouri, and in terms of total customers, the third largest natural gas distributer in Illinois.
Proceeds from the sale of this model will be donated to organizations that help Military Veterans!
