Two bay 33' hopper cars

Photoskinned with photos taken c.1972 by Chuck Bohi and from builders photos

Some cars feature ACI labels which appeared after 1967. These cars survived into the first years of the 1980's.

All these cars are from railroads that loaded bituminous coal ("steam coal") used for power plants and factories. These cars could be found throughout the northeast and beyond.

D&H Delaware & Hudson
DL&W Delaware, Lackawana & Western
ERIE Erie (w)
EL Erie-Lackawana
LV Lehigh Valley
RDG Reading

These hopper cars use Dick Cowen's model.

If you want an older and more detailed assortment of hoppers, I commend to you the BLWZT 1950's freight pack (part of the PRR4 set).
It contains hoppers from assortment of railroads and many
PRR hoppers, which were all over the east on connecting railroads. All circa 1947.
It's available at http://www.valleypas.../Sales/PRR4.htm

I hope you enjoy it!
