Hi Peolpe,

how last year discussed, a new car! in The appendix find you the first picture from this at 3D!

the original discription from this car is:

"Cement Service
This 3,250 cubic foot capacity covered hopper car is a curve-sided design with two compartments and gravity outlet gates specifically design for cement. Options for three or four circular roof hatches are available."

hi michael

one of the members here, marquette, seems to have great expertise in rolling stock and when items are produced he is able to quickly list all the american RRs who owned a particular type of wagon. for example, check he thread on conducTTor's PS2 hoppers.

cheers, ben

Hi ben,

thanks for the information, this is a great idea. For this model, I haven´t no information about the RR´s owner.

Hi marquette,

perhaps, can you make a list of all RR´s owner. I have a particular interest in canadian RR!

Thanks

Michael

This looks an awful lot like the Montana Raillink hoppers that came into Spokane regularly carrying material for the cement plant. Tom Dempsey, Spokane, WA

This car is manufactured by The Greenbriar Companies. It's fairly modern as I can only find pictures of them within the last two years, the earliest being from early 2009. The only reporting marks I was able to find are:

GBRX - Greenbrier Leasing Corporation
NAHX - General Electric Rail Services

Hi all, yeah, this is a design I don't really recognise - I've seen them, but I don't know them, if that makes sense...

Sorry about the lack of me lately, I've kinda drifted away from trains and back to airplanes (this is cyclical, eventually I'll be back to trains and away from airplanes again).

@ART&DETAIL - schick mir bitte ein email? Hab seit langem nichts von Dir gehoert, Deine Paeckchen sitzt hier seit November am Tisch...
