FT9005-2 Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Reefer
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) is one of the oldest RRs in the USA, created because the city of Baltimore, MD wanted to compete with the Erie Canal! It's dates of operation were from 1828-1987 and it served New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Chicago, St. Louis, MO, and points in between. It's motto, "Linking 13 Great States with the Nation" was appropriate for a railroad that first carried Eastern goods and passengers into our West. The B&O absorbed innumerable Lines during the 20th Century but in 1963 the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway took financial control of the B&O and it's interests in the Weatern Maryland Railway. The three railroads were brought together as the Chessie System in 1973. The WM and B&O merged in 1976. The Seaboard Coast Line, which included the L&N, Clinchfield, and Georgia railroads, combined with the Chessie System in 1980 to form the CSX Corporation which officially became CSX Transportation in 1986.
At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, our Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed. Full Throttle brings Z Scale a small, renovated 34' freight/reefer/ice car which would find use on the Railroads into the early diesel era!
