BLACKSTONE MODELS, a division of SoundTraxx®, Announces Second Release of HOn3 D&RGW 30’ REFRIGERATED REEFERS.
DURANGO, Colo. (October 18, 2017) -- Blackstone Models is accepting advance reservations for its second release of HOn3 Denver & Rio Grande Western (D&RGW) 30’ Refrigerator Cars.

In 2018, Blackstone Models will release the models in six all new road numbers. These ready-to-run models will be available with freshly shopped American Refrigerator Transit (ART) Yellow sides, and red roof and ends. They will be available in two D&RGW liveries – Flying Grande and Moffat Tunnel. As with all Blackstone Models rolling stock, these reefers will be equipped with Kadee® No. 714 couplers and free-rolling trucks. Other model details include reporting marks, order placards, and herald placement specific to each road number. Like the first release, these models include a built-in speaker housing and openings in the underbody to accommodate the installation of a Tsunami SoundCar Digital Sound Decoder for rolling stock.

This release is based on the prototypes after they were rebuilt by the D&RGW in 1926, which included new Murphy roofs. The cars were originally built by American Car & Foundry in 1908 and numbered 32 to 81. Known as the “short” reefers, these 20-ton cars traversed the Colorado narrow gauge through the late 1950s.

The estimated MSRP is $64.95. Authorized Blackstone Models hobby retailers are now taking advance reservations. For more information about this release and other Blackstone Models products, visit www.blackstonemodels.com.
