As the first-ever to tool an N-scale PS-2CD 4000! ExactRail continues its trend of innovation with this exciting new release.

Built between 1962 and 1964, the PS-2CD 4000 covered hopper is one of the earliest contemporary-type covered hoppers. Graced in the classic billboard-style paint schemes and designed with circular hatches, this car stands out from all other exterior post hoppers.

As the only N-scale PS-2CD 4000 machined and tooled in the United States, ExactRail is pleased to release this car with an all new list of innovative features, including: CNC-machined 36" N-scale metal wheel sets, etched metal roof walks, McHenry sprung knuckle couplers, fine-scale grab irons at the rook walk, brass trainline details, and the finest precision detail available.

We love what we do, and we value your support as we offer innovative new products to the industry in unprecedented fashion.

Beginning in 1977, Pacific Car and Foundry (PC&F) released a heavily insulated refrigerator car with internal, air-bag loading devices and 20" travel, sliding-sill underframe. These cars affectionately became known as "Beer Cars" for the refreshing cargo that they frequently carried.

ExactRail has engineered and tooled the most accurate version of the PC&F Beer Car ever! As the third release in our ground breaking Platinum Line, ExactRail's PC&F Beer Car is complete with exclusive features, including: stand-apart door tracks, separately applied door bars, wire-formed coupler cut levers, separately applied air hoses, stand-off brake rigging, drop down brake rods, wire formed brake clevis hangers, precision 'scale' draft boxes--which include shank-wedge, striker casting, cover plate and bolt details. As with all ExactRail products, the PC&F Beer Car is complete with CNC-machined metal wheel sets and ExactRail's equalized ASF 100 ton Ride Control trucks.

The Pullman Standard 4427 low-hip covered hopper is a classic of North American railroading, and it is masterfully recreated for you by ExactRail. With an etched stainless steel roof walk, finely crafted brake rigging, separately applied air hoses, wire retainer valve lines, grab irons and coupler cut levers, we've left nothing to be or ever.

ExactRail precision engineers for performance as well. The PS-2CD 4427 is complete with ExactRail's own equalized and prototypically correct ASF 100-Ton Ride Control trucks, precision CNC-machined 36" wheels, and now includes Kadee #58 scale knuckle couplers.
