Can anyone tell me if the 1958 2 bay covered hoppers are/were originally the ones produced by KATO ??? Thanks in advance for the help.

Vince,
The two models are based on the same ACF 1,958 cu. ft. 70-ton design, but the InterMountain models come with far better detailing. Among other improvements are wire grabs and locking bars on the IM model, whereas the Kato model is molded plastic. Also, there are differences with the end post arrangement.
