Delivered in 1910, the 100 Denver Northwestern & Pacific (the "Moffat Road" - predecessor to the Denver & Salt Lake) 31000-Series gondolas were intended to supplement the railroad's existing roster of 30000-Series gondolas. Numbered 31000-31099 and also constructed by Pullman, these cars featured truss-rods, wooden frames and arch bar trucks. While many were destroyed in wrecks, most of the 31000-series cars operated on the D&SL into the 1930s. This N-Scale model of the Denver & Salt Lake 31000-Series gondola is fully assembled but requires weight, a brake wheel, paint, decals and trucks to complete: standard Micro-Trains arch bar trucks are recommended. These cars have been tested to handle 9 3/4" minimum radius curves when equipped with the recommended trucks.
