Re: Heap Shields

Andy Miller once found some resin castings that represented
C&O "dreadnaught" style ribbed hopper car ends, that were made
to fit the Athearn car. Anyone remember who made them?

I still have several sets of brass castings of an entire end with
heap shield that date back to perhaps the '70s or '80s designed for
the Athearn hopper. I also have some plastic heap shield castings
from (I believe) Roundhouse. Never used any of them and would love a
good model that included them.
I have a pair of these ends also. I don't know who originally
produced them, though. Nice parts.
