Body Style Information: This tooling is a Chinese made knockoff of the Roco 'Centerflow' hopper that was originally imported by Atlas. The Roco model can be distinguished by the presence of 'Austria' stamped into the underframe.

Road/Company Information:
Alberta's railway network comprises about 7,000 route-kilometres of track and represents approximately 16% of the overall Canadian network. Carriers operating in the province include CN, CP and a number of shoreline railways.

The two main carriers are linked through the Edmonton-Calgary corridor. Each company operates numerous branch lines for rail car transport of bulk commodities such as grain, lumber and petrochemicals. Container traffic passes through terminals in both major cities.

Brand/Importer Information:
Founded in the late 1960's by Michael Tager, the 3rd generation business specializes in quality hobby products serving the toy and hobby markets worldwide. During its 50 years of operation, Model Power has developed a full line of model railroading products, die-cast metal aircraft, and die-cast metal cars and trucks.

In early 2014, Model Power ceased its business operations. Its extensive portfolio of intellectual property and physical assets are now exclusively produced, marketed, sold, and distributed by MRC (Model Power, MetalTrain and Mantua) and by Daron (Postage Stamp Airplanes and Airliner Collection).
