Modeling the 1950's Nickel Plate Road down on the Wheeling in and around Adena, Ohio
ChrisInteresting comparison of the three hoppers, particularly given the different top rail widths, but also the basic black color. I have limited my hopper inventory to Accurail and Athearn since Accurail produces coal loads for those. A bit backwards but... Thanks again,
With the exception of the middle Atlas hopper, the front Athearn and back Accurail cars have the Accurail's coal loads you mention. I covered mine with matte medium and coated them with black decorative sand from the Dollar Tree or Scenic Express's lump coal. The Accurail loads are a great product I need to get a LOT more of.
