Modeling C&D Hoppers/Gondolas

Good Morning,

I was wondering if anyone utilizes C&D (construction and demolition) hoppers/gondolas on their layout.  I am curious as to what is available from manufacturers to model these freight cars.

Thanks,

Adam

This service is often covered by second/third hand former woodchip or coal gons which ARE available in N:


Deluxe Woodchip cars  (not in production right now, but can be found on Ebay)

Atlas Coalveyors

Athearn Thrall high side gons


Deluxe also did (or announced) a C+D load...

I'd say it depends on era. A lot of the dam construction out west had new equipment, and the earleir the project the more the need for new equipment, as second hand may not have been available. Oroville Dam is a good example.
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.
