Re: Depression era / pre-WWII Covered Hoppers?


North Model Railroad Supplies <nmrs@...>
 

Carbon Black covered hoppers were first built around 1933 and travelled from carbon black plants to various industries involved in tyre production and printing supplies.

I believe a tyre manufacturing plant in Denver received cars but I don’t know if it was pre or post WW2.

Perhaps other list members have more info on the various destinations of these cars, beyond the tyre manufacturers in Ohio.

Cheers
