Hi Eric and List Members,
As soon as you said this, I immediately looked at all the differences between the Bowser GLa and this C&O hopper. Yet after taking a minute to consider your words, I can now easily see how this kitbash would work, and work well. There are far more similarities than there are differences.
Thanks for pointing this out.

After downloading and adjusting image levels in Photoshop, a 1925 weigh date stencil is visible.


The centered end posts and brake platform, and the different grab/handhold ladders on the corners make this an interesting prototype. I just modified a couple Bowser GLa hoppers to mimic the centered end posts. It was pretty easy.

Hi List Members,


C&O 21920 twin hopper


The web site thinks the date to be "ca. 1930-1940", but I think I see a 1925 date on the side of the car.
