Re: Hopper Help

The posting of a link to C&IM hoppers reminds me of a question. Severall years ago I inquired about the C&IM two-bay offset hoppers. Someone on the list responded that the hoppers were once painted green while in service for the C&IM. Is this accurate? If so, what tone of green might approximate that used by the C&IM?

While I don't have much in the way of modeling information, I do have some general
information about offset hopper design on-line at:

Please take a look at the hoppers in this article
And advice me on what would make a good HO model. I know the article is after this
groups time frame, but the cars are.
Thanks, I appreciate any hopper help.
