These models were originally manufactured by Delaware Valley. Bowser subsequently bought them out and released them under their own label. As pictured above, they are available in either 3-bay or 6-bay configurations. Starting in 1994, Eastern Seaboard Models also sold these cars. ESMC's models cover a variety of prototypical paint schemes from 1961 through the present. These cars ride on roller-bearing trucks and have either Rapido or Micro-Trains® compatable knuckle couplers.
Introduced in 1961 by ACF® to haul sand, clay, salt, grain and bulk plastics, this cylindrical hopper was the first commercially successful tank-type covered hopper car design.
