Our club will be celebrating our 30th anniversary in July, 2019. To celebrate that event, we have partnered with American Models to produce a covered 3-bay "DuPont Alathon Polyethylene Resin" hopper car for us. This will be the first time this paint scheme is mass produced in S-Scale.

We chose this car because it best represents the industries found in our region from the 1950's through 1960's era. The car will be produced with 3 car numbers (one number '78919' is non-prototypical reflecting our July 1989-2019 anniversary).  A choice of scale or hi-rail trucks & couplers will also be available.

For more information about our car, please visit our club's website at https://southjerseysgaugers.org/Projectshttps://southjerseysgaugers.org/Projects

Good evening. I understand that orders are coming in for the cars. As a 50+ year resident of the Delaware Valley area I was/am very familiar with the DuPont company. The fact that the type of car chosen is/was used into the "modern" era is a welcome addition to the rather sparse selection of modern rolling stock available in S. Especially models with prototype lettering and decoration. Gotta have rolling stock to pull with my modern diesels.

I've placed my orders and hope others will also. I can't wait to see the actual finished product.

The only other model I have ever seen of this particular car was in HO.


Never stop playing/operating your trains!
