Some of my HO Hopper Models
C&O Hopper Cars:
Ballast car built from a modified Westerfield resin kit
A Ted Luce shot of the same car at a C&O Historical Society convention model contest
A USRA type 50 ton hopper from an old Varney body. I have built up, but still need to paint the similar Tichy cars
The ubiquitous 50 ton offset hopper detailed from an Athearn body and Hurlburt corrugated ends
Another Ted Luce shot - my 50 ton Offset Athearn mod
70 ton quad hopper detailed from an Athearn body
A re-detailed and painted MDC 3 bay hopper. I need to finish the other 13 cars !
Shortline and early Hoppers and Gondolas
OK, they're not C&O, but I'm putting them here for the time being. A selection of various oldtime and shortline hoppers and gondolas I built for the PCH&S. Like to guess where each one came from ?
A Standard gauged R.Robb gondola kit for my PCH&S. Scale wheelsets and pastel weathering complement this excellent kit.
RR. I consider this one of the finest styrene HO car kits ever made, along with the Tichy (Gould) 120t crane, and the Detail Associates GS gondola
