The CNR Historical Association is pleased to announce the North American Railcar Corporation (NARC) will make a special commemorative edition of the NEW Marine Industries 4550cuft 4 Bay Cylindrical Hopper for the CNR Historical Association!
The Canadian National Railways Historical Association (known as the CN Lines Special Interest Group prior to 2010) was founded in 1989 as an international operational research and historical group that exclusively focuses on the Canadian National family of railways and promotes the art of modelling them accurately. The focus of the CNRHA is on all constituent parts of the Canadian National system during periods of CN ownership. Except as background, it normally will not include coverage of lines prior to amalgamation into CN, nor components after they have been sold or leased to other operators.
The goal of CNRHA is to maintain the largest and most accurate on-line resource dedicated to Canadian National Railways history. This web site contains a wealth of information compiled over many years by dedicated and knowledgeable CNRHA volunteers.
Only available at Pacific Western Rail Systems!
We be printing a limited run of these cars.
If you want to get one you need to pre-reserve yours now.
In the early 1970's the Canadian Government was facing increasing demand for grain transportation capacity and decided to build a new car to meet the needs of Canadian Grain Industry for the 1970's, 80's, 90's and beyond. It was decided that a standard design would be agreed upon, but each of the three major Canadian manufacturers could vary the details of the car as long as the overall size, shape and capacity of the car was the same. In test marketing customers have asked us to run 12 road numbers for five of the paint schemes. All the cars in the left column will have 12 road numbers. All the cars in the right column will have 6 road numbers. Payment is due upon arrival.
