A closer look: ATLAS HO TRINITY 5660 COVERED HOPPER
The 5660 Pressure Differential (PD) Covered Hopper was introduced in 1999 by Thrall Industries, as the most advanced design in the evolution of Pressure Differential Covered Hopper, a special breed within the covered hopper family. Production still continues today under the TrinityRail brand, following Trinity’s purchase of Thrall, with nearly 4,000 examples already built.
This iteration is produced by Atlas HO in the Master Series "Master Plus" line.
Amazing details and separately applied parts. Look at the fine detailing of the pressure piping.
Clear printing and legible labeling.
A closer look at the brake end "B" end detail...tons on separately applied parts with etched metal sills and wire grab irons. Also to be note, comes equipped with Kadee couplers.
Etched metal rooftop walkways.
Another view of the "B" end.
Another perspective of the underbody detail...FANTASTIC!
We just had to take another photo of that fabulous underside piping.
And finally a closeup of the trucks, air hose angle cock, draft box, brake rigging and side stirrup.
