GATX Pressure Slide Hoppers
HO Scale Resin Kit

Q Connection, is re-releasing our first resin freight car kit, the GATX Pressure Slide Hoppers. These superior-quality HO scale craftsman kits are prototypically correct for either the original CB&Q or SAL versions.  Order the version you want to model to get the appropriate instructions.  The kits are designed as an undecorated, one piece cast resin tank body with two end caps.  Stainless steel photo etchings, Athearn® A-3 Ride Control roller bearing trucks, Kadee® #58 couplers and Hi-Tech Details® brake hoses are included.  The kits are of the same high quality that has been maintained by the toolmakers of Wright Trak Railroad Models since 2001.  These cars have only been available previously in brass, most recently from Railway Classics at $285.00 each.  To reserve yours, click on one of the Add to Cart buttons below and update the quantity in the shopping cart to indicate how many kits you would like to reserve at $.01 per kit. The estimated price of the rerun of this awesome kit is only $66.99 an you may reserve them below.
Our sincere thanks and kudos to two excellent modelers, Bob Grenier and Bob Harpe, who built the first two pilot models shown below.
