I have a few of both those cars. Let me ask something. Did AF make a 940 hopper?
Like that 640. But with knuckle coupler.

Yes, but remember Gilbert assigned the 640 number to two different cars. In 1953 the Wabash hopper appeared, it was numbered 640. So there are 940 k/c hoppers but they are Wabash lettered.

Nice looking 336 mopac. Too bad the weather isn't like when your picture was taken. Lots of sun, and trees full of greenery.

Nice 678 Tom. You don't see many single switches with their box. The stamped letters are very sharp.

Nice hoppers asidlikjr.


Mopac, here's a picture of a 940 Wabash with my homemade coal load. Empty hoppers don't make any money for the railroad. I had forgotten that I made it from HO coal and a piece of foam cut to fit.

Nice coal load cramden. I hope to load up all my hoppers.
I meant the gray hopper as far as 940. Pretty sure I have some
Wabash hoppers. Of coarse not as nice as yours cramden.

Tom, have some dual control turnouts, No singles.

The 9200 Hopper

I believe it was issued in 79' and has its OB but has never been run. J.B.
