On
the N&W, hoppers were the most common type of freight cars on
their roster about a 4-to-1 ratio of hopper cars over all other cars
combined. The H2a was the most common type and was numbered from 15,500
25,499; 26,000 26,999; 28,500 29,999; and 31,000 31,999. Thats one
impressive class! N&W also leased these hopper cars to the PRR
and B&O where they were painted in their respective schemes.
BLI offers these hoppers also.
The Roanoke Shops built 13,500 H2a hoppers between 1948 – 1956 and
approximately 2,000 were leased to the Pennsy. These handsomely crafted
and highly detailed models are available in distinctly numbered 6-packs.
