Re: ARA Quad Offset Hoppers (was MDC/Athearn triple offset hopper)


The C&O purchased many of them in the early-thirties.

How about the quad cars that the original NS had? They attached wood
extensions to them and used them in woodchip service. I don't know where
they got them from though.

Thanks for the info. The only thing I have on the NYS&W and TN cars are
from pics on Fallen Flags, but after 1960, FWIW:

Nehrich believes that the TP&W cars are probably ex-B&M based on the
fact that they and the New Haven cars appear at about the same time as
when the B&M cars were dropped from the roster during the mid-1960s.
Both TP&W and NH cars were leased from US Railway Equipment; their
stencil clearly appears on a Soph Marty photo of TP&W 2059 taken in
1969. I don't have anything on the NYS&W or the TN cars.
