Model Information: This body style was made in China for Model Power. It is a knock-off of the Lima 40 foot flatcar which was imported by AHM, MRC, PMI as well as Model Power. You can spot the difference by checking to see if "Lima" is stamped on the bottom. The Chinese made models also have wonky clips holding the trucks in place instead of the ubiquitous "Kingpin". The model measures 3.43" long so it comes in at over 45 scale feet but nowhere close to the advertised 50 feet in Model Power catalogs and marketing material.
Road Name History:
The officer in charge of the branch for doctrine, training, and professional development purposes is the Chief of Transportation (COT). The current Chief of Transportation is Brigadier General Michel M. Russell, Sr.
The insignia is metallic gold and brick red enamel. Surrounding a mariner's wheel is a shield representing a U.S. highway marker. Superimposed on the shield is a winged rail wheel on a railroad track. The symbols represent the four major modes of transportation: marine, road, aviation, and rail.
In early 2014, Model Power ceased its business operations. Its extensive portfolio of intellectual property and physical assets are now exclusively produced, marketed, sold, and distributed by MRC (Model Power, MetalTrain and Mantua) and by Daron (Postage Stamp Airplanes and Airliner Collection).
