We are proud to introduce Broadway Limited's newest HO scale freight car project - AAR 70-ton 3-bay hopper cars. These hoppers were everywhere on the railroads - at their peak they made up about 6% of all open hoppers, and approximately 1.5% of the entire North American freight car fleet. The first of these cars appeared in the late 1930's, and several were still in service in the 1980's!
In all, over 33,000 cars were built to this design, by numerous manufacturers and for over 30 railroads. The cars were used to transport coal, gravel, coke, and other bulk commodities across North America. In our first production, we are offering 4-packs and single cars detailed and decorated for 8 major railroads, and we will also offer Unlettered cars painted Oxide Red or Black. See below for more model features!
