ExactRail HO Scale: Thrall 54' Coil Car - Conrail 'Repainted Hood'

The Thrall 54’ 'Coil Shield' Coil Car is a signature prototype like few others.

In 1992, Conrail purchased a unique “well” style coil gondola, and they assigned it the car class G52S. Through 1995, Conrail sought additional orders and ascribed G52T, G52U and G52V car classes. In total, Conrail purchased nearly 750 “coil shields.”

These coil cars are one of the most recognizable—and quite frankly, one of the coolest freight cars of the contemporary era.

ExactRail has meticulously recreated the Thrall 54’ “Coil Shield” Coil Car in HO Scale. With great attention, we have accurately captured the details of the prototype. From the complex, exposed brake appliances of the B-end platform, etched metal walks with appropriate tread pattern, and the intricate multi-piece framework of the coil hood, this car will impress.

Conrail 'Repainted Hood'

Conrail 631073 is a G52S that has a little unique flavor. It has been crowned with a hood that has been applied with a much more simplified design. Most likely the result from wreck damage. It is likely that this is not the original hood to 631073 and found its way here after getting separated
