History of the Thrall 2743 Gondola

In 1995, Thrall Car Manufacturing Company introduced the 2743 cubic capacity gondola. New standards for Gross Rail Loading (GRL) allowed car manufacturers to increase the internal loading dimesions of their designs. With a new interior height of 5’6”, Thrall’s design is the contemporary standard for 52’-6” length gondolas.

ExactRail recreates the Thrall 2743 Gondola with our team who designs, engineers and tools in the United States. With exceptionally accurate lettering styles and logotypes, ExactRail’s Thrall 2743 Gondola offers a host of exclusive features which are uniquely ExactRail.
