That looks very nice.

I'm in for a PRR car too, but mine's getting stripped.   8)

Looks like the Dupont car needs to get back into the modeling queue.

looks awesome, but it's about 4 years too new for my era.  :x

OK, that's two covered hoppers from BLMA that are too old for my modern UPRR Geneva Sub.  Same thing for their gonds and 89' flats.  Here's hoping the next new offering is modern.

Tank car. That's all I'll say.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Hoping for an LPG car from the 80's, but thinking ethanol/crude.

Dry flo looks great, btw.

Looks like is car that travels to and from Golden, CO, probably looks like the one in front or the one in the back. :D
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

So if Dri-flo's were produced beginning in 1959, and they ran a full 40 years, what did they look like in 1999?  And did they still run in revenue service at that point?  I could see using a couple of really weathered ones for the Exxon North Baton Rouge Polyolefins plant run . . . . .

Close in those ends and change the outlets on the dry flo, maybe you have a decent foob of a carbon black hopper?

I don't think so.  I think the car we are seeing either has extended draft gear or the trucks set in from the ends like a bulkhead flat.

I was going to change my guess to a bulk head but Exactrail and Atlas both already do one in HO.

I think it is either a bulkhead flat or a 60' boxcar. 8) The car definatley appears to be 60'

Weall, it's likely something that is or was used in unit trains because it is being offered in 24 numbers and/or 6 packs. My guess is a tank car for crude or Ethanol or a Hopper of some sort either open or closed.
