Illinois Central GulfRoad # ICG 322200
33' Twin Bay Hopper w/Offset Sides
Part #MTL-055 00 140
Reprint: Oct 2012


This 33’ twin bay hopper with offset sides is painted black with orange herald and white reporting mark, and logo. It was built in March 1948, serviced in April 1974 and runs on Bettendorf trucks. The Illinois Central Railroad was chartered in 1851 to build
a railroad from Cairo, IL, to Galena, IL. In 1972, the Illinois Central merged with the parallel Gulf Mobile & Ohio to form Illinois Central Gulf. By 1990 the road was a trimmed and rationalized ‘Chicago-to-Gulf’ railroad, returned to ownership by individual
shareholders, and operational management by a team of serious-minded railroad people. The name Illinois Central Railroad was restored.
