As railroading has come into the modern age, car manufacturers have continued to improve and innovate rolling stock. American Car Foundry, a company with a long and storied history, has produced covered hoppers that have 2, 3 or 4 Bays for maximum cargo transport efficiency. These extruded aluminum cars are equipped with either round roof hatches that guard against airborne contamination, or elongated hatches for easy loading. Each intricately detailed car sports realistic roof walks all the way around the car, die cast metal trucks and all metal operating couplers for smooth operation.

I have the second edition 2004 catalog and this car K6244-8014 is not shown in this edition as stated here.I have a chance to buy this car and looked in my 2004 catalog hoping to find it and it is not listed.
The only aluminum hoppers shown are on pages 68-69,Please let me know if I am wrong.
