Full Throttle FT-1066  BLCX - SP  1078, 1085  51’ covered cylindrical hopper set  Two car set.  The Southern Pacific (SP) was a huge American Railroad, founded in 1865 and incorporating many smaller railroads such as the Texas and New Orleans, Central Pacific, Morgan's Louisiana and Texas, and St. Louis Southwestern (Cotton Belt). The Southern Pacific, headquartered in San Francisco, CA, owned many narrow gauge routes and subsidiaries such as the Northwestern Pacific Railroad and the Southern Pacific Railroad of Mexico. SP's rails ran through Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, California, and Oregon, including a route southward into Mexico! Rio Grande Industries (D&RGW) bought the SP in 1988, kept the Southern Pacific name, and expanded it's trackage to include Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming, then, virtually the entire Southwestern USA! Following years of financial problems, in 1996, the Southern Pacific was bought by the Union Pacific Railroad.. The cars ride on Bowser’s roller bearing trucks with blackened metal wheels.
