I recently purchased a pack of Walthers Goldline RD4 Coal Hoppers in BNSF (Power Bar) livery.

The pack contains six highly detailed Trinity coal Hoppers. The model is well made with good weight to the hopper car. Each car in the pack has a different car number. The BNSF herald and markings on the car are crisp and very finely printed.

The car features internal bracing, molded rivets, under-car bay-door details and a realistic aluminum paint finish. The model comes with metal wheels/plastic axles.

I tested a train with three packs, totaling 18 cars and was impressed by their performance. The cars roll well and look good, but I will make improvements by reaming out the axle pockets with a truck turner and possibly replacing the wheels with ones that have metal axles.

Overall I would recommend the model and I am considering purchasing more.

MRSP: $109.98
