This 33 twin bay hopper with offset sides is yellow with black lettering and runs on Bettendorf trucks. Built as an N-41 hopper in the early 1950s, it was converted into an icebreaker/clearance device car in the mid-1960s. This helped prevent impact damage to automobiles being transported in open autoracks. It featured large vertical frames to clear icicles from the inside of tunnels and low bridges.
