History: As 100-ton steel hoppers approached retirement in the 1980 and 1990's, railroads requested that car builders to lighten cars to improve tare weight and fuel economy. Johnstown America answered this call by producing the aluminum AutoFlood II coal hopper. Johnstown America provided an aerodynamic design with a lower center of gravity and the ability to be bottom or rotory unloaded. The AutoFlood II also included the all-new MegaFlo™ automatic discharge system. The result is a sleek, smooth-sided hopper with extreme, contemporary presence.
