Hersteller: Tangent Scale Models
Think of this Tangent Scale Models PS4750 model as the EMD SD40-2 of covered hoppers. Similar to the SD40-2, the Pullman-Standart ("PS") 4750 covered hopper began production in 1972 and was the most popular seller within its peer group. With more than 56,000 cars produced (not including clons from other builders and railroads), the 4750 followed upon the successful "high hip" design of Pullman's earlier desins, the 4750 covered hopper, also offered by Tangent. When Pullman ceased production of 4750s in 1981, the amassed fleet was the largest covered hopper fleet from any builder, and was on of the most prolific productions of a singular design during any era. Like previous offerings, our PS4750 is a state of the art, dimensionally-accurate scale replica with highly accurate "true-to-life" colors and precise letter stencils. Our PS4750 offers our most ambitous effort yet to include a multitude of detail variations to replicate the defferent phases of production and customerspecifications. Example variations include: brake systems, outlet gates, roof hatches, jacking pads, roof overhangs, running boards, crossover platforms, end ladders, brakewheel housings, and brakewheels. The replica includes our fine "near-scale" draft gear box with side "key" detail. Our ready-to-operate replica is finished with coupler lift bars accompanying Kadee® scale couplers and sufficient hidden weights to ensure the model operates as good as it looks.
