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. The UP runs more coal than any other freight commodity on its rail lines, running 60 coal trains a day out of the Powder River Basin in Wyoming, and servicing all of the western United States. This set includes 8 individually numbered Bethgon coalporters with the following identifying marks: 288005, 288033, 288078, 288081, 288111, 288139, 288162, 288131.
