Atlas chose that prototype because of the extra length... It was easier to hide truck mounted couplers underneath it....

I would definitely be interested in a proper Lake Superior ore car... Yummy...  :D

And since they're visually similar and 90% of people wouldn't notice or even know the difference anyway...

Hi Guys

After surfing around looking at Ore cars I have found one I like

Not sure what it is but this style really appeals to me. Would anyone know where I could start looking for blueprints/plans for this. I have come up blank on my searches so far

As to the U30 Ore car I would agree with Chris the Difference would only show up on something like the Ore dock.

Cheers Warren
