All About Postage Stamp Trains
4841: 70 Ton Container Cars

Prototype Information

Roco's model of an ACF container car is apparently quite faithful, although it's an uncommon car. They were built in the 1950s to carry small containers of acrylonitrile, a toxic, flammable and explosive chemical that required specialized transportation. I've not been able to determine which railroads besides Du Pont used these cars.

Model Information

  • 4841/345 Monsanto
  • 4841/355 Du Pont
  • 4841/365 Hooker Chemical
