N Scale NASA Hydrogen Car Rd#201
NASA purchased this 83 foot, 70-ton tank car new from Linde in 1965, which held 34,400 gallons of refrigerated liquid hydrogen for use in support of the Space Shuttle Program. Refrigeration equipment was housed in one end, along with a manway that provided access to the tank’s interior. This custom, ready-to-run car is a true multi-media project featuring a resin cast tank, laser cut components for the underframe, 3D printed bolsters and photo-etched deck and end railing. The car will come fully decorated and weathered with truck-mounted Magne-Matic couplers.
