After those I will try to bring the 2-bay hopper on the market, but that depends on the outcome of a discussion about it this weekend.

I'm taking a look at the C&S hopper at the weekend. :wink: And the future plans are also interesting.

But I don't like the yellow dot (at SCL). This shifts the period of the model to 1978 and the following years.
In 1978, a bad batch of 33″ wheels from the Southern Wheel Company was suspected in causing several derailments. To quickly identify and eliminate the problem, all cars with 70 ton or less capacity and 33″ wheels had to be inspected. If the cars had the recalled wheels they were given a marking like this with a white dot. Cleared cars were given the yellow dot. The mandate came in March of 1978 and all bad wheels were to be identified and replaced by December of that year. (And through December cars with a “white dot” could not be included in any train carrying hazardous materials.) New cars built during the period were also given the yellow dot at construction. There was no pressing reason to remove the yellow dots, so many stayed on freight cars for decades until they were repainted or retired.

You can order it without the dot.
Which year would you like? Earlier than 1967 is not possible for SCL.

Thanks for your offer. But I can't buy every car. Because of the lack of enough bucks.

I have promised to make some more CB&Q hoppers for Rob.

Hi Jan,

Looks beautiful. But I have still to update my website. Till now you won't see the C&S 20000, but this weekend that will change.

The fair in Gotha was positive and I could make some assembling agreements about the 2-bay hopper from Ian. They will be produced in a limited quantity. At least when the protype is accepted. The hopper will have an extra weight in it. By doing so it will lose some of the inner details. I would say wait till you see the prototype the end of this year. The car will be expensive and prepared for a MTL coupling. Reading, B&O and Frisco printouts will be provided in small quantities. There will be more, but I will announce that in December.

Ok, next topic, I will provide another car in 2020. Probably a fishbelly 42 / 44 ft flat car.. In this weekend you will see the first prototype. I must say hopper scrap will fit nicely on this car.

Have some fun and lets create more cars. (Ah, a 1000 pcs of a 50 ft boxcar)

Rob

Some pictures:

The SCL shell on the flat car was a scrap model from JP, where the yellow text was not correct in line with the white layer below.

In the reality hoppers were scrapped as can be seen for BC&Q 172067 in the last picture by use of these flat cars.

The flat car is a prototype with the correct friction bearing 50 ton trucks. The couplings are too low and there is no text printed on fishbelly beam. But this is a project for the end of 2020. First the 2-bay offset hopper.

The SCL car isn't that badly print on. So the flat car is from Peresvet like I see. The couplings are really low. Perhaps you can switch to an MTL 2004.

A new hopper: the TNO 4781 from 1953 with the "Southern Pacific Lines" logo is on stock. (The SP 440146 is almost sold out.)

To compare this hopper with the SP 440146, both cars are in one picture, which is taken handheld, not 100% sharp, with artificial light making the color not accurate. The SP is pad printed by MTB and the TNO is pad printed by another company. (The printout for both cars are of course created by Richard.)

The SCL and the Chessie with some more Burlingtons are expected to be available in December this year.

Is there a request for a Rock Island version? (Picture is taken with a mobile phone, but it gives an impression.)
