Description

New Paint Scheme! Offered in 2 road numbers.

This familiar hopper was an industry standard on many railroads since the 1930s. It was adopted by the AAR as a recommended design, but fell out of favor by the mid-1950s. While offering greater capacity over cars with conventional flat sides, the original open hoppers created corrosive interaction between acidic coal and the carís joints, leading to costly rebuilding programs.

    Features Include:
  • Separately-applied coal load, brake wheel and brakewheel platform
  • Either flat end or arched end as appropriate for railroad
  • Accurate painting and lettering
  • Metal couplers and sprung die-cast trucks
  • True scale dimensions with accurate details
  • Weighted, detailed underframes
  • 2-rail cars feature scale wheels and body mounted scale couplers
