Re: Kato ACF Covered Hoppers

The more common and much-needed ACF 1958 roof is the style with
standard hatch spacing, but with seam caps on the roof. Some roads
-only- had cars with this type of roof, e.g. CB&Q. Sunshine did a
mini-kit but it was a roof overlay rather than a replacement roof
and it was designed to fit the Kato GATC car.
Some railroads rebuilt the cars with round hatches. Eastern Car Works
made a couple of different replacement roofs for their ACF 1958, and
I think they produced round hatches, plus evenly spaced hatches.
