PS-2 CD 3 Bay Hoppers

Shipping companies determined in the late 50s that the standard 2 bay covered hopper was too difficult to load and even more difficult to unload. Pullman Standard answered their calls and developed the CD 3 bay hopper (center discharge), the most colorful and popular covered hopper ever made. (The Santa Fe alone bought 4500 CD hoppers.) Not only was the center discharge system a major improvement but more so the development of a trough or longitudinal hatch for loading, this allowed loading anywhere in the general vicinity of the top of the car. All car manufacturers followed suit and most two bay hoppers became obsolete. Still seen in large numbers, however much larger hoppers are being built today.

Our model features a "see through" 4 piece etched metal roofwalk. Separate ladder details with hand applied rungs and grab irons. Tough ABS plastic body with precision brass wheelsets, with added steel weight inside. Completely assembled and ready to run with new prototypical close linking couplers. Undecorated versions also available. Scale or AC Flyer versions introductory priced at $49.95.
