IC "Chiseled Side" Offset Twins (was Re: Forgotten Accurail Great Northern 2 Bay Canton Hopper)
The New York Central rostered fifty-ton offset twins in the mid-1920s that may have similarities to the IC hoppers in the color image Steve sent along. When were the IC cars built?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Here's some detail on NYC cars from Terry Link's site.
A drawing of a lot 479-H car from 1924.
An image of a similar Big Four car from lot 533-H, built in 1926.
Cars with similar specs are noted in lot 534-H and 535-H, also in 1926.
Another image of a car from lot 539-H, also built in 1926.
Possibly these can be bashed from an Athearn quad by cutting out a chunk of the center to make a twin then cleaning up the ends for finer detail. Just an off-the-cuff suggestion as I have not fully examined an Athearn quad in years.
