The no. 279-3046 Milwaukee Road coal hopper is joined by the new Milwaukee Road no. 279-3965 3-dome tank car. The tank car costs $19.99 and the hopper costs $19.99. Both are available in multi-unit packs. The no. 279-3955 6-piece Milwaukee Road 3-dome tank car pack costs $99.94 and the no. 279-3487 Milwaukee Road hopper eight-pack costs $139.92.

Menards has added a Wisconsin favorite, the Milwaukee Road, to its line of three-dome tank cars. I've tossed in the previous Milwaukee Road coal hopper since they are still available. The hopper and tank car are $19.99 each plus shipping, or go to to order and select free shipment to your local menaces store.

The Hopper car came out in 2016 and our ample is just that, a sample. Rest assured your car will have a unique number!

The three-dome design is popular with both postwar and modern operators. It is a familiar shape and comes with die-cast metal wheels and operating couplers.

Looking down you can see plenty of spots to affix a brakeman or maybe a hobo!

I don't know if the Milwaukee put their logo on the ends of tank cars, but it looks pretty sharp on this car!
