30'6" Panel Side 2-Bay Hoppers

Bluford Shops is proud to announce our next new tooling project for N scale: 30’6” 2-Bay Panel Side Hoppers. These cars first appeared in the 1930’s as some early USRA design hoppers came due for heavy maintenance. A predecessor of Standard Railway Equipment introduced replacement side panels that were bulged outward between the ribs for the purpose of increasing the interior capacity of the cars. A number of USRA hopper fleet owners adopted these panels, or those from competing suppliers, for a portion of their 30’6” 2-Bay Hopper fleets.

These ready-to-run N scale models will feature: die cast slope sheet-hopper bay-center sill assembly; injection molded plastic sides, ends, and hopper doors; fully molded brake tank, valve and air lines; body mounted brake hose detail; coal load; lever-style hand brake; body mounted magnetically operating knuckle couplers; close coupling; and Fox Valley Models metal wheels.
