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. Many of these hoppers are available in 4 different road numbers, perfect for running long strings of cars.
