Baltimore & Ohio IB-12 with Ice breakers - N Scale


This 33’ twin bay hopper with offset sides is yellow with black lettering and runs on Bettendorf trucks. Built as an N-41 hopper in the early 1950s, it was converted into an icebreaker/clearance device car in the mid-1960s. This helped prevent impact damage to automobiles being transported in open autoracks. It featured large vertical frames to clear icicles from the inside of tunnels and low bridges.

Inclues 3D printed Ice Breakers that come painted but require trimming from 3D supports
