TT Nut PS2 3 Bay covered hopper

TT Nut PS2 3 Bay covered hopper

Had a chance to do a bit of slicing and dicing of the 2 bay hopper so the 3 bay version is very close to complete :)

Cool pics :) I never realized how "small" this car is until the above pics of it next to other cars.

There are a lot of current (2000s) pics of these cars, too, but I couldn't really be bothered to look for them. But these - and the 2 bay version - are still around aplenty! Some of them still in old old schemes, too!

I really need to learn this CAD stuff... I need cylindrical hoppers too, 3 and 4 bay... and so many other things... augh... well, once I've got my desktop back up and running!

Yeah, I hope someone can figure out how to design an ACF centerflow hopper soon. ...dave

Next car I'm doing is a 50' Airslide hopper. Good enough?

Okay. Just thinking (besides the fact /I'd/ like some cylindricals) it'd make a nice visual difference to have cylindricals in a train with 3-bay and 2-bay straight-side PS2s... :)
