Wood Chip Hopper Interiors
Scott H. Haycock
Thanks for all the ideas about alternate (to paper mills) industries for these cars.
I wonder, does anyone has any photos of the interior of these cars?
I will be building a model of Norfolk Southern woodchip hopper #4005. This was an ex C&O 3-bay hopper with a wood and angle iron body extension for greater capacity. I'm trying to determine if were any modifications, or additional members were added to the interior of the hopper sidewalls, or were the angle iron supports simply welded to the top bulb angle?
