HP Products Hopper Cars

Postby AstroGoat760 » Sun Nov 22, 2009 8:48 pm

Here is my current fleet of HP Products hopper cars, in two flavors.

The top car is a covered hopper, while the other three are of the open type.

The HP Products hopper car is a little different from their other offerings of car kits:

The body of the car is a milled piece of wood, with an overwrap of thin metal, embossed with "rivets".

The bottom car shows the wood piece that comprises the bulk of the car.

My hopper:

It is much more shorter than 40-feet boxcars...

Can anybody tell something about the prototype?..

i'd need to see a bit more detail honestly, it's hard to make out anything as it is so dark.

The open hopper looks roughly like the USRA standard design!

Everyone and their dog use those.
