Test Weight Cars are used in maintenance-of-way serviceto precisely calibrate track scales. Each car was built to a specific weight toallow for the most accurate calibration, ensuring that customers would becorrectly billed for their cargo loads and that trains would remain below the maximumsafe load limit for the railroad they'd be running on. Bachmann's highlydetailed Test Weight Cars replicate a 1930s design that can still be found inuse today. All examples feature precision scale railings and brake wheels,road-specific design differences, and come decorated in a variety of authenticcolor schemes.

Features include:

  • Silver Series® rolling stock
  • highly detailed die-cast painted bodies with separately applied brake wheel and precision graphics (where applicable)
  • blackened, machined-metal wheels with RP25 contours
  • magnetically operated E-Z Mate® couplers
  • non-magnetic, blackened-brass axles with needle point bearings
  • prototypical weight for optimum tracking performance
