Our "Later Years HO Airslide Returns"

     General American had been building Airslide covered hoppers since 1954 but in 1965, a noticeable change was made to the design. Triangular gussets were added to the upper corners of both sides. Cars continued to be built with the gussets until the early 1980's.

     Airslide technology consisted of an air-permiable fabric lining the bottom of the interior of the car. To unload the car, compressed air would be pumped through the fabric and the load (usually powders such as flour) would slide down to the discharge gates.

Con-Cor's Original "HO" Famous HO Airslide
Now Ready to Run !


About the Con-Cor HO Airslide Model:

      The Airslide was one of Con-Cor's very first kits way back in 1962. Jim Conway our company's founder, remembers when he first called GATX and talked to a Mr. Leroy Kramer head of GATX's Public Relations Dept about Jim's idea for the project. As a result, Jim got a private tour of the GATX car building facility in East Chicago Indiana.

     Those were the days when companies such as GATX not only had a public relations department, but also an "offical" company photographer. On that private tour way back in 1962, Jim also met the company photographer who told Jim he could go through all his photos and make a list and GATX would provide 8x10 copies to Con-Cor at no charge. Not to be greedy, Jim spent several hours going through filing cabinets of stuff and picked out a large stack of photos.

     Jim remembers when he gave the list to the company photographer, he was afraid the guy might tell him to "thin down the pile", but no, he was told it would take about a week to get the set of prints, and sure enough about a week later some very thick envelopes arrived in the mail.

     The envelopes contained copies of all the photos Jim has asked for, along with a complete set of "Erection" drawings on the Airslide cars.

     It was from this material that Jim made the first HO Airslide kits.

     The HO Airslide was revived again by Jim in the early 1990's when he made the model as a highly detailed plastic kit.

     Now the Airslide comes to life again for the 3rd time as a fully factory assembled and decorated R.T.R. model.

     And the better news is that while going back through the old records we found a large number of those original 8x10 photos that Jim had gotton from GATX. To date some of these paint schemes have NEVER been done in HO by anyone.. so we will be offering in the future a lot of unique distintive Roadnames that never have been modeled in HO as far as we can tell.
