North American Ethanol -- Modern Industry for Your HO Railroad
Ethanol is big business--especially for railroads. Long trains of identical tank cars and huge strings of covered hoppers moving grain and ethanol byproducts have become an important part of the railroad landscape. Since the late 1980s and early 1990s, ethanol has more than DOUBLED the traffic hauled by some railroads!
Cornerstone North American Ethanol series kits, Gold Line(TM) freight cars and PROTO 2000(R) locomotives make it easy to add this rail-dependent industry to your model railroad.
Ethanol traffic touches almost every corner of the North American rail network--from the vast cornfields and wheat fields of the midwest to busy petroleum terminals in large cities. It should touch your post-1980s model railroad too!
Seven Cornerstone kits make modeling a complete ethanol plant easy. Three Gold Line freight cars make building your ethanol- and grain-hauling car fleet fast and fun. And a new release of PROTO 2000 EMD SW9/1200 locomotives are ideal for working the loading facilities and support trackage at your ethanol plant.
