New Freight Car Delivery Today
The Meridian Speedway took delivery of seven covered hoppers today. The simplest cars in the latest InterMountain release got my attention this time. A plain "Data-Only" run of ACFX 4650 CUFT 3-Bay covered hoppers with round hatches is a perfect fit for my railroad.
I managed to secure two of them - ACFX 49279 and ACFX 49951.
Two additional ACF 4650 CUFT 3-Bay hoppers made this order - BN 446197 and BN 458531. These cars will ad to my growing Burlington Northern grain fleet.
Three PS 4750 CUFT cars reached out to me as well. ICG 765764, NAHX 55169, and PTLX 14185.
The ICG car, well there is no such thing as too many ICG grain hoppers! The Ralston-Jefferson and Sand's of Iowa cars I have seen in Illinois Central grain trains. Below is a picture I took of NAHX 55208 on the IC at Hammond, LA. I also remember seeing and photographing the Sand's of Iowa cars on the IC in Illinois. Those photos are somewhere....
