Truck: Tangent 100-ton Barber S-2 trucks with roadname-specific rotating bearing caps and separate brake beam part Wheels: CNC-Machined 36″ Wheels Southern (SOU) Brown Delivery 1975+ PS3600 represents one of many Pullman-Standard freight car purchases made by the Southern Railway in the 1970s.  The Southern PS3600 coal hoppers were delivered in the typical red paint with SOUTHERN spelled out on the side.  The stenciling does not end there though – there is a significant amount of stenciling on these cars, plus of course an accurate ACI label.  These cars also have “SOUTHERN” and road number stenciling applied to the underframe.  If you look closely, you will notice that, YES, we tooled up a Southern body version that features the Southern-specific “open style” ends and SC-1 Empty-Load Brake Equipment details.  Check out those details, with a parallel-mounted air reservoir and additional piping for the SC-1 Equalizing Reservoir!    The PS3600 cubic foot hoppers purchased by Southern had low-mount handbrake housings, a distinction from the Pullman-Standard Chessie/B&O prototypes.  The handbrake is an accurate Universal-style brake housing and brake wheel to finish off this Southern replica.  We offer this scheme in 24 all-new road numbers so you can model a unit train or mix and match with your other hoppers.  Also, don’t forget to match our models up with your Tangent Southern quad door auto parts cars, in stock at Tangent and at stores! Features for these coal hopper replicas include: Dimensional accuracy – designed from Pullman-Standard plans and verified with field measurements Highly correct “true to life” colors “Hyper-Accurate” lettering including exact fonts and lettering placement “Near-scale” draft gear box with beautifully-rendered side “key” detail Multiple road numbers for each scheme Two different coal loads (one load is included with each model) Separately-applied “car shaker” parts “See-through” brake platform Full “lacy” AB brake detail and train air line Rubber air hoses including “wrong side” mounting for rotary ends Five dimensionally-correct coal hopper body variations with appropriate side panel arrangements (trapezoidal and flat), as well as offset and non-offset truck center arrangements Six different assembly builds within our system Road-specific details for each scheme, including different brake appliances and 2 different styles of unloading door mechanisms Beautiful details – wire grab irons and coupler lift bars – no “molded on” plastic grab irons here!
