Reading Road # RDG 80337
33' Twin Bay Hopper, Rib Sides
Part #MTL-056 00 180 SOLD OUT
Reprint: March 2010

This 33’ twin bay hopper with rib sides and red coal load is painted black with white ‘Reading’ herald and red, white and
black anthracite logo. It was built in May 1941 and runs on Bettendorf trucks. The dyed coal load, in this case red, was
used as a marketing tool as well as freight delivery benefits; the dye helped keep coal dust down and acted as a lubricant to help the coal flow through the delivery chutes.
