Industrial Mix Tanks Load


This load is a model of a two-part blending and equalization tank used in chemical or food processing.  This model load comes complete with the dual-chamber vertical blending tanks, a pair of coarse filtration disks, a bundle of two box beams, a parts crate, and gray mounting wire.  The model pieces come fully painted and ready to use. Below are a 1986 photo of the prototype load in the process of being tied down, and a photo of the load installed on a GSC flatcar to illustrate the finished result after mounting.  This is a load that is compatible with a number of eras from the 1950s through present day. It can be used to represent new equipment, or dulled down to give a used appearance.

hood type options per prototype


The “flat-land” operating Rock Island ordered their GP40 without Dynamic Brakes. The lack of the dynamic brake blister in the middle of the long hood gave the Rock Island units a unique appearance among GP40 fleets.

prototype inspired detailing


Open hood doors were a very common sight on hood units operating in the late 1960s-1990s. Our models offer this prototypical detail as an option on our GP40 locomotive models providing five door opening settings per side including closed. Some doors will include a fire extinguisher detail.
