Hi everyone,

I have a Athearn PS 2893 Covered Hopper lettered for the Monon.

Did the Monon use them for grain loading?

Thank You.

Hi Dan, The Jan '55 ORER Monon listing contains a Note F which states
"Cars in series 4376 to 4390 (1958 cu ft) and 4401 to 4430 (2893 cu ft)
are specially adapted for handling bulk flour. Not suitable for
handling general bulk commodities. Regards, Don Smith
