Micro-Trains 095 00 021 - PS-2 2 Bay Covered Hopper - Western Pacific #11301
Built in March of 1958, this PS-2 hopper with Bettendorf trucks was purchased by Western Pacific in an order of 30 cars. The Pullman-Standard all-welded steel, 2,003 cubic-foot two bay covered hopper would become one of the most popular cars of its type with railroads and private industry. It was designed to haul everything from powdered chemicals, to grains, to construction materials such as sand or cement. Versatile and durable, this car continued in revenue service into the early 2000’s, and was sometimes found later in MOW service.
