History: Since the 1970s, these versatile twin hoppers have been used in ballast, sand, gravel and ore service. You'll find single car shipments as well as unit trains running on the rails, Several railroads (including Wisconsin Central, Southern, Norfolk Southern and others) have also used them to haul taconite pellets from mines and ports to steel mills.
Used everywhere, they're at home in your quarry, steel mills or waterfront scenes. Add them to your work trains as ballast hoppers, or to your unit rock trains alongside Ortner Aggregate Hoppers for runs across your layout.
