Re: questions regarding ACF Carbon Black Hopper
thanks to all who replied! Much more than I did expect!
whereas JMHX 252 very obviously is a heigthened car, I think on SHPX #25176 the slope sheets are lower compared to the OMI model (assuming that model is accurate...). Maybe even the angle is more flat, both would make a little more capacity.

I think all of the models (brass - resin - plastic) represent one design - I am not certain which one!
It's either the 2850 cuft or the 3000 cuft car. But it's not the 3480 cuft design which was wider and
By 1953 SHPX series 25162 to 25181 was 20 2850 cuft cars. By 1972 the exact same
number series still has 19 cars but are now listed at 2998 cuft. Unfortunately the 1953 ORER
does not have the extreme height and width information listed in 1972, so all I can do is
guess that the cars were rebuilt by increasing the height slightly.
