"Athearns ribbed hopper!"
No for two reasons, Ed. First, I wouldn't consider this model "one of the
best hopper models out there", as Armand has characterized. Second, while
there is no prototype by Irv Athearn's design, this model coincidentally is
close not only to PRR Class H31 as Elden pointed out, this model can be used
for Virginian and Rock Island prototypes, as well as a base for Wabash's
later panel sided cars. See posts 26630 and 54902 for more details.
