Yeah I'll take whatever I can get. The ACF centerflows are the most common hoppers though and in the range of 2 bay to 4 bay they can be used to haul everything from cement to grain to plastic pellets. The centerflows have a slightly curved side with an angle and some ribs along the top edge so they may be hard to draw in 3D software? ....dave

First version is here and except for a small height adjustment that needs to be made, it's all good. It will require one more iteration before it's available. Here are a few pics with its smaller brother :)

Don't let the photos mislead you - a lot of these "fallen flag" road cars are still in use now - a number of the photos are from the 1990s and 2000s!

Weird. I may make the other version when I have time.

Thanks for the pics!

I've decided that I'm going to make an imaginary rail company that all my cars and locos will belong to. That way, I can put everything I have on whenever I want and it's always in "prototype" :mrgreen:

I just came up with the name earlier today too. The D&ARR - the "Dead and Alive RailRoad" - in honor of TT :wink:

This style.

The one in model form is the rarer design.

Oooh by the way please note I wasn't pointing out the thing with the angles in the corners to nitpick or out of annoyance! It was just an observation. I'm delighted that we're getting these cars, as I can use several of both! Of the three bay Alex has already done, I'm planning to get at least three - two for Milwaukee and one for GTW!
