Re: no prototype 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.

So what do you think the answer is, Ben and Armand?

As to "best models out there", it's no Kadee model but if you consider the price I think it was pretty good for the money, at least before Atheran's new owners took over (don't know what the MLP is now).

Glad to see you're still with us Ben.
