I recently purchased a near-perfect assembled Walthers 34' HO hopper in its original box. This was produced c. 1937-39, and was made of thin lead castings mounted on wood blocks. the castings are neatly soldered together. The slope sheets seem to be made of Strathmore. It has 8 raised panels,and a vertical brake staff.
Does anyone have any idea as what the prototype might have been?
