    Atlas (BLMA) Tropicana reefers. These cars are new, never run, and in their original boxes. All have knuckle couplers. Very nice end platform detail. Please zoom in on the image to see road numbers.

    Cars are $17 each. Payment by PayPal F&F or money order.

    Shipping is $7 via USPS Priority mail. If you are buying multiple cars, shipping will be charged according to what will fit in the Priority mail box.

    Please message me if interested.

    I gotta ask. I've never done much in N-scale, and I was out of model railroading for about three decades before diving back in. But what is the attraction of the Tropicana cars? As I go through, and sort the rolling stock from my Dad's layout I've found that he collected a huge number of Tropicana cars. There are probably 20, or 30, or more, and that's far more than any other kind of freight car (although there are a great many passenger cars from a wide variety or railroads) other than military flat cars of every description.

    Of course, he's not around to ask so, since you have a few, maybe you know?

    Tropicana used to run a unit juice train from Bradenton, FL to NYC where the cars were parsed out to get juice to the mid Atlantic and east coast pre-PSR. It was a hotshot train, rivaling the TOFC/COFC trains in their superiority. The originally juice reefers in the 1960's were orange; the white took over later and these are the third generation.
