Tangent Scale Models

Dry-Flo Covered Hopper CB&Q #85279 "Original Gray 1959+. CB&Q “Original Gray” 1959+ is one of the most-requested schemes for this car. This car has all of the cool features of the real car, including a gorgeous “Burlington Route” placard, large spelled out “Burlington,” and “Everywhere West” and “Way or the Zephyrs” on alternating sides of the car. These Tangent replicas are available in six road numbers and will stand out on any layout. CB&Q and BN used these in services including soybeans, spent grain, petroleum coke, corn products, oats, bentonite, and various milled products, and then were placed in silica sand service late in their lives. They wandered far and wide away from the CB&Q and BN system.
