Micro-Trains (USA) Evans 100-Ton 3-Bay Covered Hopper


Although MTL seems to think these cars are based on an Evans 4750 cf prototype, I'm told that they're actually based on an Evans 4780 cf prototype (built 1977-81).

Here's what MTL has to say about them -

This Evans three bay covered hopper was first built in 1966. This car is a 4750-cuft, three compartment aluminum covered hopper with 100-ton BarberŪ roller bearing trucks. Corrosion resistance and the lightweight of aluminum made it especially suited to the construction of large covered hoppers. The 4750-cuft aluminum covered hopper car offers a payload of 105 tons, nearly 7 profit-tons more than a steel car of comparable size.
