"This is a photo of a Channel side hopper. Western Maryland had quite a fleet of these.

There is a model available from Stewart, I own about 50 of them, but they are not strictly accurate. NOT STRICTLY.

The best starting point to scratch build, or more accurately, kit bash one, is with the Bowser PRR Gla."
