Hawker-Siddeley was a group of British engineering and manufacturing firms whose interests had historically been in aviation. There, Hawker-Siddeley manufactured the WWII era Hawker Hurricane, and their founder, Tommy Sopwith, developed the early Sopwith Camel. After World War II, Hawker-Siddeley diversified into the domain of railroads by way of subsidiaries like Hawker-Siddeley Canada and Westinghouse Brake and Signals. Throughout the 70s and 80s, Hawker-Siddeley Canada produced numerous freight cars, including the Hawker-Siddeley CP Rail 65' gondola.
CP Rail rostered 115 Hawker-Siddeley built gondolas. In addition to these cars, the CP Rail also had 100 Marine Industry Limited (MIL) built gondolas. These cars are virtually identical to the Hawker-Siddeley built cars.
ExactRail is pleased to have tooled the first ever Hawker-Siddeley 65' gondola! With the finest micro-tooling in the industry, ExactRail's Hawker-Siddeley CP Rail 65' gondola accurately captures the essence of this railroad-unique freight car. The Signature Series affirms ExactRail's love for the freight car, and it demonstrates that with ExactRail's Signature Series any model is possible!
