An Announcement That an All-new Product Announcement Will Soon Happen!

In June of 2014, ExactRail "previewed" our all-new Southern Pacific G-100-22 gondola at the Bay Area Prototype Modelers meet!  But lets not kid ourselves, a preview is effectively an announcement for an upcoming announcement.

Now, we are pleased to announce that the previous announcement for an upcoming announcement will soon be announced!

In May, ExactRail will announce the HO Scale Southern Pacific G-100-22 Gondola!

In 1974, the Southern Pacific received 100-ton, 65' mill gondolas from Thrall Car Manufacturing. The railroad classified these cars as the G-100-22. They were among the first 100-ton, 65' gondolas acquired by the railroad. The G-100-22 is a distinctive car. Like all modern gondolas, the stature of this car gives it presence. Yet, the modern "facade" is betrayed by terminating dreadnaught ends and trucks that are well inset. This car is distinctive--for sure, and that is why we love it.

The Southern Pacific G-100-22 will be offered in the "1974 As Delivered" paint scheme in 9 road numbers. The model is a Platinum Series replica and features:

  • Wire grab irons, brake rods, tie downs
  • Etched top chord tie-downs and brake step
  • Kadee #158 Coupler
  • CNC-machined wheels and axels
  • Accurate print and colors
Please watch our website for an actual announcement with photographs, prices and availability!

Great looking SP gondola car, as usual. I’m looking forward to seeing one in real life. I use “gons” to carry track sections in my MoW consists. As an aside comment: Will you consider offering again the TTX FBOX series, Trinity 50’ high cube boxcar in HO scale (I recall it was released as an “Evolution” series car in the 2010-11 time frame)? They are in very high demand on Internet of Things websites like eBay. A rerun of TTX cars should be a sure-fire sellout for you and your dealers. :o)

They look great Blaine, with a good shape, and somewhat similar to the Hawker Siddeley cars you did a while back in CP Rail colours.
Will these be available in different SP paint schemes and did Cotton Belt & Golden West have any ?
