The Pepsi bottling plant is running fill tilt with corn syrup coming in by rail and finished cans and bottles leaving via truck! The Pepsi sign flashes a wonderfully contrasting red, white, and blue logo.Trucks (from Menards) and tank car not included.

Menards will help quench the thirst of the residents of your O gauge Traintown with the no. 279-3860 Pepsi bottling factory. The structure has industrial decoration, staff figures, and safety and security lighting provided by 24 LEDs. The structure's footprint is roughly 14 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches. The factory costs $99.99 plus shipping.

The car costs $19.99 plus shipping, and is available in the no. 279-3986 Union Pacific boxcar four-car dealer pack for $69.96 plus shipping.

The loading bay area is illuminated for outbound Pepsi to be moved for any late night soda emergency.

This MTH RailKing tank car gives an idea of the sizes of rolling stock you can position at the plant.

Our four-legged friend Jack chills with "upper" management at the factory. The structure has ample security and safety lighting and the water tank beacon flashes, as does the Pepsi signage.

The Union Pacific boxcar continues the placement of Built by Menards on the end of the car.

The boxcar has crisp graphics.

The mighty Union Pacific shield is accompanied by technical nomenclature about temperature control equipment.

See this car whizzing past at a 1:48 scale grade crossing and you'll know that your cargo is in good hands!
