Re: Bowser N&W H30

The N&W HC-1 covered hoppers are very similar to the PRR H30; N&W had 10 cars in this class; the more numerous HC-2 were basically identical, but lacked the "rivet strip" in the center of the car.  Info/drawings available at and search the archives.

Don Janes asked:"Did the N&W have H30 covered hoppers similar to the new Bowser H30's done in N&W paint scheme?"
Tim O'Connor replied:
"The N&W HC-2 class built in 1942 are nearly the same -- some roof hatch
differences, maybe a few other details."
N&W 70160-70219, 60 cars.  Photo after 1965 repainting from the Virginia Tech Norfolk Southern collection (and the only Class HC-2 photo in the collection online):
I'd like to emphasize that these are NOT secondhand cars from the Pennsy, but acquired new by the N&W.
