Full Throttle FT-3010C-2 NH & DLW 51245 & 81466 Two-bay offset-side hopper set Ztrack Center Authorized Item. One of the most unusual, and favorite collectibles from the Full Throttle archives is the 'blue coal' hopper. Not often, when I happen to see them for re-sale somewhere, they can be quite an expensive purchase! I've decided to make them available once again this month, Mar. '22, probably for the last time. My age and infirmities dictates that there will be no more runs ten years down the pike. Full Throttle pays tribute with 2-Bay "Billboard" Hoppers replete with the original 'blue coal' logo. Hay Bros. has created the realistic 'blue coal' loads.
From the late 1920s to the early 1950s, the Glen Alden Coal Co. of Ashley, PA, sprayed home-heating anthracite coal nuggets tumbling down the chutes of their huge, historic Huber Breaker, BLUE! An odd, but successful marketing ploy, 'blue coal' was known throughout the Northeastern USA due largely from advertising on popular Radio Shows, like "The Shadow." The prized and colorful commodity was hauled to silos, and distributors throughout the region by ma NIB
