Think of the PS-2CD 4750 (“PS4750″) prototype as the EMD SD40-2 of covered hoppers. Similar to the SD40-2, Pullman-Standard (“PS”) began production of the 4750 covered hopper in 1972 and was the most popular seller within its peer group with more than 56,000 cars produced (not including thousands of clones from other builders and railroads). The 4750 followed upon the successful “high hip” design of one of Pullman’s earlier designs, the 4740 covered hopper, also offered by Tangent Scale Models. When Pullman ceased production of 4750s in 1981, the amassed fleet was the largest single body covered hopper fleet from any of builder, and was arguably the most prolific productions of a singular design during any era. In other words, they were super common! It was rare to find a manifest train without a PS4750 in it. Today, that feat is harder but it is still pretty true.

PS4750s were built to last. It is hard to tally how many ply the rails of North America today, but it is clear a large percentage of the fleet is still in service, working for their original or perhaps new owners.

Features for this PS4750 replica include:

  • Dimensional accuracy – scaled from Pullman-Standard plans and verified with field measurements
  • Highly correct “true to life” colors
  • “Hyper-Accurate” lettering including exact fonts and lettering placement
  • Genuine Kadee® scale couplers
  • “Near-scale” draft gear box with beautifully-rendered side “key” detail

  • “See through” etched metal running boards and crossover platforms (in one of 3 possible variations)
  • Road-specific details for each scheme, including 7 different brake systems, 3 different outlet gates, 3 different sets of roof hatches, 4 jacking pad sets, with or without shaker brackets, 2 roof overhangs, 3 different running board and crossover platform options, end ladders options, 7 brakewheel housing and clevis options, and 2 brakewheel options.
  • Beautiful details – wire grab irons and coupler lift bars – no “molded in” plastic grab irons here!
  • Separate air hoses
  • CNC-machined 36” wheels in high quality Tangent Scale Models 100-ton trucks
  • Recommended age 14 years and older
