N Scale




70 ton 3-Bay Offset Side Hoppers first appeared in the late '20s and by the late '30s had become an AAR standard design with cars delivered from a number of builders in large quantities. The last of these cars were delivered in the late-'60s and many remained in service through the '80s.


These ready-to-run models feature: diecast slope sheet-hopper bay-center sill assembly; injection molded plastic sides, ends, and hopper doors; fully molded brake tank, valve and air lines; slope sheet braces; separately molded vertical brake rod and lever assembly; body mounted brake hose detail; “coal” load except as noted;  body mounted magnetically operating couplers; close coupling; friction bearing or roller bearing trucks as appropriate for each road name. All road names are produced in multiple road numbers. Draft artwork is show and is subject to improvement by our crack team of railroad historians.



Canadian National adopted the 12” billboard lettering for hopper cars in 1958. Then in 1965, this group of cars was renumbered into the 320000 series, often without a full repaint. Two years later, they began to receive their ACI tags. It is at this stage that we present these CN cars in 6 road numbers.
