Re: Hopper info wanted
Two thoughts, Clarktoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
1) I have identified secondhand hopper candidates with their cubic capacities, other dimensions to confirm. With B&O, I have a lot of this to do.
It takes about 3 hours to skim an entire ORER, looking at cubic capacity column only. Less if the match occurs near the front.
2) The rr-pictures site has a 1942 M&StL twin ribbed hopper in a publicity still in its photo archive. Contributed by Merrill Price. Is this the one? One can make out the word 'Chicago" under the paint in the upper left of the car. Chicago Freight Car?
