This group of Chesapeake & Ohio 8-panel hoppers was the product of a mid-60s rebuild program at C&O’s Raceland Shops. A portion of the fleet later received four yellow ribs on each side denoting that they were assigned to Armco Steel (the yellow circle next to the road number was a signal to carmen and agents that this car was for unit train service and should not be confiscated.) Changing traffic patterns and car availability rendered these markings superfluous and these hoppers scattered across the region. This paint scheme will be available in 6 road numbers.  These ready-to-run cars feature die cast slope sheet-hopper bay-center sill assembly; injection molded plastic sides, ends, and hopper doors; fully molded brake tank, valve and air lines; body mounted brake hose detail; load; body mounted magnetically operating knuckle couplers; close coupling; and Fox Valley Models metal wheels.
