The C&O "dreadnaught" style ribbed hopper car ends, were made by a now defunct hobby shop in Hampton VA. He was going out of business when I first found him almost ten years ago. I talked him into opening one of the boxes packed up for the bacnkrupcy auction and sell me the ends.

BTW I also had to modify the sides of the Athearn hopper to produce the three twin rows of rivits on the alternate std AAR car.

regards,

Andy Miller

Nope. They were made for the Athearn car. Al's parts are
all from his kits.
