Transformer load

Put a flat car to work with a new Resin Car Works electrical transformer load. The kit is our latest release and an includes two HO scale resin cast transformers with crates for $34, plus postage.

The transformers are one piece resin castings and represent oil cooled units that are being returned for, or from, rebuilding. The design is from the Twenties, so they can be built new for that era or used into the 60’s when transformers of this type were replaced. Resin parts are supplied for the blocking. Modelers must supply wire for the tie-down rods. Prototype loading diagrams and ordering details can be found on the Resin Car Works website.

SFRD reefer kits

Santa Fe Refrigerator Department reefers are the latest Resin Car Works HO scale freight car kit! A total of 1,360 SFRD rebuilds in the RR-35, -36, -39, and -40 classes were added in the mid-1940s. This new kit reflects these prototypes. Decals were created directly from prototype images. Tahoe Models #012 USRA 50-ton Andrews sideframes are provided in the kit.
