MULTI-SCALE — Coming in HO- and N-scale from BLMA Models will be an all-new Trin- ity 5,660-cubic-foot Pressure Differential (PD) covered hop- per model. Thrall Industries in- troduced this advancement in the evolution of Pressure Differ- ential covered hoppers in 1999. Production of this car design continues today under the Trini- tyRail brand name. More than 4,000 examples of the Trinity 5660 PD are in service today on North American rails. The car’s design is ideal for transport of powdered commodities such as flour and talc. This 5,660-cubic-

foot capacity covered hopper fea- tures five non-opening bays con- nected to a master pipe. Unlike traditional “gravity discharge” hoppers, unloading for ‘Pres- sure Differential’ cars is accom- plished by applying air pressure into the car’s interior that forc- es the load out through piping along the car’s underbody. BLMA Models plans to de-


liver its HO- and N-scale Trin- ity 5660 PD covered hoppers during the 2nd quarter of 2016. Four road names comprise this initial release: CITX, ConAgra Mills (GACX), North Dakota Mill (CEFX), and TILX. Six road


numbers will be available for each road name. Intricate de- tails on these new models will include separately pre-applied train line air hoses and cou- pler cut levers for both HO and N scale. The model will ride on 36-inch metal wheels and will feature body-mounted knuckle couplers. BLMA Models will of- fer its Trinity 5660 PD covered hopper models at $49.95 MSRP for HO-scale. N-scale examples will retail for $29.95 each.
