Re: [EXT] [RealSTMFC] BMX 801. What’s the background on this car?

Charlie,


We’ve discussed aspects of the Barrett fleet extensively here over the years. A search of the archives for “Barrett” will get you there and adding “Tarvia” may help narrow it down.

 

As for this car, it is in service as a covered hopper carrying roof granules. It appears to have been one of a number of  cars converted from a General America radial course tank car. You might even be able to use the Tangent model as starter.

 

Regards,

Bruce Smith
