8-car N scale Bethgon Coalporter gondola set by Kato. Since 1982, the BethGon Coalporter has been hauling "black diamonds" across the United States. The largest selling Coal Gondola in the world, the car's double tub design increases hauling capacity while reducing maintenance requirements. Tubs below the car lower the center of gravity, providing a smoother ride.
- Removable coal load lets operators run full or empty between coalmine and terminal
- Shock absorber construction and low-flange metal wheels provide smooth operation
- Internal bracing of the tub, close coupling between cars and detail lettering on these cars make them look just like the real equipment
- Designed to complement the Kato SD40-2 Mid Production, SD70MAC, AC4400CW and C44-9 locomotives (sold separately)
