Will Wright has a beautiful Full Throttle site of his own at http://www.wdwfullthrottle.com/.

but please use the Full Throttle site to keep current on Will'Z wonderful workZ!

[I'd also like to thank Will for his long friendship and his many beautiful cars, which have given me,
and continue to give me, great pleasure on my Berlinerwerke-Z.]

[These Full Throttle pages were heavily reorganized on 30 Jan 2006 and again on 12 Jun 2008, featuring new releases and background information on the home (main) page and putting older material on the products page.  As the product line has grown, it has outstripped this format and so these archival pages were added, listing all the older models offered and providing links to the photos and descriptions of newer ones.  Because of the extent of the offerings (and the site pages), the master index was moved to this page; only the archived offerings were to appear on the archive pages.  Because these pages are now inactive, they will NOT normally be updated or cross-checked further.]   rev.gif (18 Apr 2013)

Here's Will's Dec. '09 FT offering.  It's a wonderful Holiday Offering of Southern Railway 70-Ton offset-side hoppers.  Will hopes you are loving this very special time of the year, and sends his best wishes for you all and his thanks!

FULL THROTTLE

Here is a brand new offering of SOUTHERN RAILWAY offset-side 70-ton hoppers.  Each 2-pack features two different SR liveries, one in white lettering on red and the other in white lettering on black.

SRRHerald

There has been a shortage of Z Scale freight cars for the Southern region of the USA, so Will is proud to offer these nifty prototypical coalers, so common throughout the entire area that makes up our Southern States!  Several predecessors, dating back to the 1820's, led finally to the Southern Railway by 1894.  In the 1980's it merged with Norfolk and Western R.R. to become Norfolk Southern.  A venerable Rail Line oft wearing a green color scheme on both steam and diesel engine alike, the SR ran freight and passenger trains from Richmond, Virginia, to Greenville, Mississippi, and from Florida to Louisiana and all points between, living up to it's motto, "We Serve the South!"

Christmas in the South!  These coalers were manufactured with great details by Bowser Mfg., painted either red or black to a slight sheen inside and out, and equipped with custom Hay Bros. Garage coal loads.  They are weighted and sport the new Bowser Bettendorf Trucks with super-gliding blackened metal wheels, and knuckle couplers.  They feature white printing, immaculate, tiny and clean, in several sized fonts and two different Southern Railway liveries!

Will closes out 2009 by saying, "Z Friends, this is a very limited-sized run of these Southern Railway 70-ton hoppers.  This Dec., '09 FT offering is really well-detailed and should be very popular with all Z Scale Hobbyists ... great to run or collect.  Again, thanks so much for all the Zeeriffic support you have given Full Throttle throughout 2009 and my very best to you and your enterprises!  Merry Christmas and God Bless us all, everyone!"

Here's a new hopper that's been accomplished and is about to be offered!  It's a very special 33' open, rib-side, two-bay hopper for the Pennsylvania Railroad.  At some expense, Zscale Monster commissioned this run to sell at his Online Store.  Soon, at the Zscale Monster's site, you will see a PRR MoW Hopper painted in Pennsy's "Campcar Yellow!"  It's patterned after a prototype found at one of Pennsylvania's historical railroad museums.  The models were produced by Full Throttle and Hay Bros. Garage created the fantastic sand and gravel loads for them.  The printing is simple, done in black, but the yellow color makes the car a stunner!  This is how Pennsy painted all their MoW workers.  These little haulers come equipped with Bowser's Bettendorf trucks, knuckle couplers, and blackened metal wheelsets!  Packaged in FT's clear plastic cases and foam cradles as 2-pack #1 and 2-pack #2, there are four different reporting numbers, two each to a set.  In each set, one car will carry a load of sand and the other a load of gravel/ballast.  The run has almost been completed, and if you would be interested in adding some PRR MoW hoppers to your rosters, you can get more information on them from Zscale Monster.  Will hopes you will be as excited about these new hoppers as he was to work on them.  Really nifty!

WDW #2028 PRR 33' Open Rib-Side 2-Bay MoW Hopper Car

One of the most common US freight cars during the first half of the 20th Century was the small two-bay open hopper.  Originally used to haul load after load of coal to a growing American industrial complex, eventually larger more modern and technical haulers were employed. ; The smaller two-bays became relegated to the short-lines, lugging coal, gravel, ore, sand, glass, vegetables, and a variety of other bulk materials.  Many railroads used them for Maintenance of Way jobs.  Zscale Monster has commissioned a run of prototypical "Pennsy Campcar Yellow" MoW twin hopper casr for Z-scale rosters.  Useful for carrying sand or gravel, these spunky workhorses became indispensable to the Pennsylvania Railroad!  Full Throttle and Hay Bros. Garage were delighted to participate in the project!

Here's an FT "Special Offering" - it is Collector Pack #3 entitled:

OhioHaulersSm  (14 Nov 2009)

This is a small reprint and only 35 2-packs are available.  Many Z Folks didn't or couldn't get these models, so Will is making them available once again in a very limited fashion.  He'll see you next, in December!

WDW #CP3 - Collector Pack #3

OhioHaulersLg

This is a "Special Offering" release from FT; there are but 35 2-packs available.

The 2-pack features an offset-side hopper of the Nickel Plate Road and a rib-side hopper of the Akron, Canton and Youngstown Railroad, both railroads having their origins in Ohio!  They have new and different reporting numbers from the cars in the initial FT releases.  Many Z folks have contacted Will, personally, to ask if he had any more of these cars left, or if he would make a rerun of them.  He didn't want to go overboard, so here is a tasty little 2-pack in hopes of making everyone, customers and dealers alike, happy!

OhioHaulersLg     OhioHaulersLg

Important to Ohio's railroad history, these two coal hoppers find their heritage from within the state.  The offset-side model represents a hauler from the large Nickel Plate Railroad, whose home was Cleveland, Ohio, and the rib-side hopper, a model illustrating a coaler from the roster of the Akron, Canton and Youngstown Railroad operating from Akron, Ohio.  The NKP had rails running the perimeter of the Great Lakes region from New York to Illinois and down into Missouri, while the ACY, a smaller concern having many interchanges with larger railroads, had lines running from the coal fields of western Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, across northern Ohio to the extreme western part of the state.  During the Twentieth Century, both lines fed the fires of the American Industrial Revolution with load after load of coal!

NOVEMBER 2009 OFFERING
from
FULL THROTTLE

Here is the November '09 offering from FT.  This was a relatively small run, and the FT dealers have what they need in stock.  Here is a brand new offering of CPRail offset-side 70-ton hoppers.  They feature the PACMAN logo and are very handsome in white on black. 

The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), known as CPRail (CP) between 1968 and 1996, has a rail network that stretches from Vancouver to Montreal, and also serves major cities in the USA such as Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York City.  Its headquarters are in Calgary, Alberta.  Originally built between eastern Canada and British Columbia between 1881 and 1885, it is Canada's first transcontinental railway.  Now CP is primarily a freight railway, since it's passenger services were eliminated in 1986 after being assumed by VIA Rail Canada in 1978.  Since 1970, coal has become a major commodity hauled by CPR.  Coal is shipped in unit trains from mines in the mountains of British Columbia to terminals at Vancouver, from where it is then shipped to Japan.  The CPR hauls over 34 million tons of coal to the west coast each year.

New Bowser Bucklers!
(10 Oct 2009)

They will soon be available at your Z Scale Full Throttle Dealers!

Uncle Will's "Full Throttle"
Z Scale
Bettendorf Trucks
Knuckle Couplers

+ sure close coupling + no "slinky effect" + lowered bolster plate
+ correct wheelbase + detailed, prototypical appearance
+ blackened, insulated, self-centering, metal wheels

Z Friends,
    These talgos will be packaged in white foam cradles, four pair to a case.  The clear plastic cases are identical to the cases for FT rolling stock, only less deep, of course.  Included are the bolster pins with four extras!  Altogether, very nice packaging, indeed!

BowserBucklerBox

Over the course of the last few months FT rolling stock ... open hoppers ... have been equipped with the Bowser Bucklers and Will hopes you've taken the time to try them out.  They have been tested and perform flawlessly on both Marklin and MTL track.  Although they are not automatic uncoupling, they have many positive features.  David K. Smith has written two excellent reviews concerning Z Scale trucks and couplers, and specifically the Bowser Bucklers, and Will urges you to read them:

    http://jamesriverbranch.net/clinic_2.htm

    http://jamesriverbranch.net/clinic_3.htm

There are many desirable aspects of the "Bowser Bucklers."  The knuckle head is very prototypical, and when two are "clicked" together, they really do hold, like the prototype, and assure that there won't be any unexpected uncouplings over the line.  The coupler "heads" are compatible with MTL and AZL, but while using them in conjunction, they will not uncouple automatically over a magnet!  There is a straight shaft with nothing protruding from the sides.  The coupler box is quite a bit smaller than any other Z Talgo Coupler on the market.  This means that closer coupling, more real-to-life, is afforded, and the appearance of a coupler close to the body of the car is very appealing.  Also the "Bucklers" do not use a spring but, rather, there are ears on the shaft that is inside the box.  This means that there is no "slinky effect" when hauling long consists.  And, thus, unwanted "surprise" uncoupling on a grade is a thing of the past, as well.

The appearance of the truck has also been enhanced by these "Bucklers".  Bowser has modeled the trucks in a very prototypical fashion; that is, the bolster plate is not flush with the top of the truck but is below the top, just like on the real units.  Cars appear lower and more realistic!  Also, the wheelbase is correctly in proportion, and the trucks don't look too small beneath the car!  The detailing of the trucks is certainly very well done for Z Scale.  Altogether, these attributes give Z Scale railcars a very convincing impression.

Perhaps the most apparent feature of the new "Bowser Bucklers" are the metal wheels.  As expected, there is less dirty build-up on metal wheels and the sound is very "trainlike" as they transverse the track.  These wheelsets are insulated of course, and there are some nifty additions to them that aren't so obvious.  They have a slightly fatter and smaller flange than other Z wheelsets; less long and knife-shaped.  There is a filet between the rim and the flange.  This is a feature that helps to keep the wheelset centered within the tracks as it revolves.  The wheels are slightly blackened to give a prototypical appearance.  They glide readily in their trucks, and so much so that you may expect to haul much longer trains when using them in consista.  And, finally, these talgo truck/couplers are shot and assembled here, in the USA, by one person, by hand, one by one, in an effort to keep excellent quality control.

Here is the pricing of the new Bowser Bucklers from FT and FT Dealers:

  MSRP
  1 to 5 cases: $26 per case
  6 to 11 cases: $24 per case
  12 or more cases: $22 per case
If these new truck/couplers are of interest to you, please contact Full Throttle!  FT can now take your orders, directly!  Several FT Dealers, listed below, already have these trucks in stock and Will hopes you will give them your support:

New body style from Full Throttle

The Alaska Railroad (ARR) extends from Seward and Whittier, in the south of the state of Alaska, of the USA, to Fairbanks and beyond to Eielson AFB and Fort Wainwright in the interior of that state.  Uniquely, it carries both freight and passengers throughout its system.  The railroad has a mainline over 470 miles long and is well over 500 miles including branch lines and sidings.  It is currently owned by the State of Alaska.  The railroad is connected to the lower 48 via three rail barges that sail between the Port of Whittier and Harbor Island in Seattle but does not currently have a fixed land connection with any other railroad lines on the North American network.  In 2008, the company earned a profit of $12.5 million dollars.

Dear Z Friends,
This month, Sept., '09, FT features an ARR 70-Ton Offset-Side 3-Bay Hopper!  It's a 40' three-bay offset-side hopper car marked for the Alaska Railroad.  This is a brand-new body style brought to you by Full Throttle.  The models were manufactured with great details by Bowser Mfg., painted black to a slight sheen inside and out, and equipped with custom Hay Bros. Garage coal loads.  They sport the new Bowser Bettendorf trucks with super-gliding blackened metal wheels and knuckle couplers.  They feature yellow printing, immaculate, tiny, and clean, in several sized fonts in the ARR plain letter scheme, and are offered in 4-packs with four different road numbers:
Set #1 reporting numbers:	14308	and	14340
Set #2 reporting numbers:	14337	and	14343

This is a limited-sized run.  All FT cars are weighted and wear knuckle couplers.  The realistic custom coal loads are cast by Hay Bros. Garage!  This Sept., '09 FT 70-Ton hopper release is really well-detailed and should be very popular with all Z Scalers... great to run or collect.  Again, Will says thanks so much for all the Zeeriffic support you have given Full Throttle and his very best to you!

August, 2009 33' two-bay rib-side hopper car WDW #2026 Pennsylvania Railroad (shadow keystone) New Rib-Side Twin Bay from Full Throttle The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) was founded in 1846.  Commonly referred to as the "Pennsy", the PRR was headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The PRR was the largest railroad by traffic and revenue in the U.S. throughout the first two-thirds of the twentieth century and was at one time the largest publicly traded corporation in the world.  At its peak, it controlled about 10,000 miles (16,000 km) of rail line.  During its history, the PRR merged with or had an interest in at least 800 other rail lines and companies.  At one point the budget for the PRR was larger than that of the U.S. government; at its peak it employed about 250,000 workers.  In 1968, the Pennsylvania Railroad merged with its rival, the New York Central Railroad, to form the Penn Central Transportation Company.  The ICC required that the ailing New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad be added in 1969.  A series of events including inflation, poor management, abnormally harsh weather and the withdrawal of a government-guaranteed $200-million operating loan forced the Penn Central to file for bankruptcy protection on June 21, 1970.  The viable parts of the Penn Central system were transferred in 1976 to Conrail, which began earning a profit in 1981.  The Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX Transportation split Conrail in approximately equal portions in 1999, with the former now owning the old Pennsy Main Line across Pennsylvania.  The Pennsylvania Railroad's corporate symbol was the keystone, which is Pennsylvania's state symbol, with the letters PRR intertwined inside.

In the August 2009 e-mail of encouragement, Full Throttle is offering two very nifty rail cars!  The first is a Western Maryland (ball herald) rib-side twin-bay hopper; FT offered this car as a single in the the Appalchian Drags Collector Set four months ago (17 May 09), and the response was Zeerrific, so we are offering a two-pack of them for those that are collecting or want to expand their WM rosters.  The second offering is a four-pack of the new offset-side 70-ton hoppers sharply dressed for the DT&I.  Those interested in the steel industry and especially the auto industry will be thrilled.  If you model the Great Lakes area of the USA and Canada, or the Midwest, these will also be welcomed!  If any of these short runs is so successful as to be in further demand, FT will surely make another run later on with different reporting numbers.  As always, Will is very thankful for your support!

WDW #2025 WM Western Maryland (ball herald)

New Rib-Side Twin Bay from Full Throttle

The Western Maryland Railway (WM) operated in Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.  It was primarily a coal hauling and freight railroad, with a small passenger train operation.  The WM became part of the Chessie System in the 1970's, ceased operating its lines in 1983, when the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad took over, and was merged into CSX Transportation in 1989.

WDW #4003 DT&I Detroit, Toledo and Ironton

New 70-Ton Hopper from Full Throttle

The DT&I merger of the Detroit & Lima Northern Railway and the Ohio Southern Railway was purchased by Henry Ford in 1920.  This gave Ford strategic control of shipments of raw materials and finished goods to and from his factories in Dearborn, MI, because it connected with all the east-west rail lines throughout the Midwest!  After battles with the ICC, in 1929 Ford sold the Line to the Pennsylvania RR, and it became an independent subsidiary until 1970.  In 1955, the DT&I switched from steam locos to General Motors EMD diesels, exclusively, and painted them bright orange!  In 1980, the DT&I was acquired by the Grand Trunk Western Railroad (GTW).  In 1997, much of the remaining trackage of the DT&I was sold to Railtex which operates it under their Indiana & Ohio Railway division.

(CHESAPEAKE AND OHIO - plain)

New Offset-Side Twin Bay from Full Throttle

The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway (C&O) was formed in 1869 in Virginia from several smaller Virginia railroads begun in the 19th century.  Tapping the coal reserves of West Virginia, the C&O's Peninsula Extension to new coal piers on the harbor of Hampton Roads resulted in the creation of the new City of Newport News.  Coal revenues also led the forging of a rail link to the Midwest, eventually reaching Columbus, Cincinnati, and Toledo in Ohio and Chicago, Illinois.  By the early 1960's, the C&O was headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio.  In 1972, under the leadership of Cyrus Eaton, it became part of the Chessie System, along with the Baltimore & Ohio and the Western Maryland Railway.

70-Ton Offset-Side Hoppers (27 Jun 2009)

Coal!  Entering the twentieth century, American industry couldn't get enough!  Bigger hoppers were needed to sate the appetite, so with improvements of rail car trucks, the 70-ton hoppers began appearing for service in the early 1920's.  As with the smaller 50-ton hoppers, the clever economical offset-side design was adapted to these larger capacity units.  By the mid-1930's an AAR "Standard" 70-Ton Offset-Side Hopper car was developed.  After the steel shortages caused by WWII, this large smooth-side version blossomed.  Practically all the Rail Lines bought into it; however, certain inherent problems became apparent.  The stakes or "inside" ribs were more prone to corrosion than when their construction was on the "outside," and of course they suffered more damage from coal being loaded directly upon them.  The offset-side concept dwindled during the 1950's, and by the 1960's was all but abandoned for new coal cars built afterwards.  The late twentieth century saw the advent of modern rotary dumping, and railroad improvements led to even larger "coalers" without a need to employ the traditional "hopper" bottoms.  "Full Throttle" brings the Z Scale hobbyist a universal model of these memorable hoppers, complete with realistic coal loads crafted by Hay Bros. Garage.
