Fox Valley Models HO Scale USRA 55-Ton 2-Bay Open Hopper, Colorado & Southern/Burlington Route/C&S
Coal hopper cars were specially designed in the late 1800s to transport coal to railroads, factories, and homes. The basic design had an open top for loading, slope sheets for unloading, and bays with doors for quick unloading. The design was improved over time to increase capacity, and the US Railroad Administration standardized the 55-ton all-steel open hopper during World War I. Over 22,000 were produced and widely used through the 1960s and early 1970s.
