Funaro & Camerlengo has released an HO scale PRR class G28 gondola. The model features drop ends, AB brakes & decals and is available in two forms:
- 8210 Flat Kit, MSRP $36.99
- 8211 One Pice Body, MSRP $44.99
The flat version will be available at the PRR&THS Annual Meeting for $16 as a bagged kit!
The G28 was a 52'6" steel car with drop ends and a fish belly sill. The car featured a capacity of 140,000 lbs., 1,870 cu. ft., and lt. wt. 55,800 lbs. The G28 had 12 side panels.
Nearly 1,900 G28 gons were on the roster from the 1940's through the 1950's. Over 600 were still rostered as of 1968.
I am not aware of any previous model offerings for this class.
