The beauty of the transition era: local trains! On a smaller branch, you'd possibly see only a couple of coal hoppers, for serving those towns' coalyards that had a coal trestle... and possible, too, that you'd have coal in a hopper or two, and some more coal in a gon or two, the gons for those towns that didn't have a trestle...

Good idea!
I have a HP Products open hopper so I can use 2 hoppers in local train...

I swear, I've never seen anyone make scenes out of as little as you do. Cheers to you sir.

I like those hoppers.
Here are my first 3 Kemtron hoppers. They are almost finished, they need only a matt clear paint. Some more Kemtron and some PVM hoppers are waiting. Kemtron hoppers are quite easy to assemble.

Nice hoppers. I like them too.
But it seems to me that your ones are too glossy, aren't they?

Where did you get the C&O decals? Maybe I'll get some more offset-side hoppers soon and I need some decals...

They have to be glossy for applying the decals correctly.
They will get a matt clear paint. The first one got a grabiron made out of a wire (not included in the kits). It was an experiment. It seems to be OK. The next one will get both grabirons.
Both C&O and CP-block decals are old PVM / Sign-man decals.
CP Script scheme (and CP block scheme) might be available from BlackCat decals. He would be happy to get more TT orders :)
