Re: Broadway Limited 70-ton offset Quad hopper

See RPC #4. Broadway did one of the 1929 design versions of the quad hopper.  If you are modeling MP, MILW or MKT you are in luck.  The other 1929 owners had some details that were different.

B&O had the earlier 1926 design. For B&O, I have reluctantly concluded that scraping the ladders off the Athearn car is still the least bad alternative.   The undecorated cars unfortunately have a thick coat of paint that will make adding details such as the external doubler strips (RPC #4 description) over the bolsters a challenge.   Lots of other details that need to be changed for B&O, too.
