this site seems to be a relatively expert place when it comes to US rolling stock so i am wondering if anyone knows much about this design of woodchip hopper: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPi ... id=1456298

common or fairly rare? i do like the pressings.

The exact type of car is fairly rare, used for transporting wood chips from wood mill to paper mill. I have seen a couple similar cars on sidings in the past, no pictures sad to say...
