70 Ton Covered Hopper
New Paint Schemes!

Introduced by American Car & Foundry (ACF®) in the mid-1930s, the 70 Ton Covered Hopper, with 1958 cu.ft. capacity, offered an improved design for the transport of dry bulk goods. The car proved to be widely popular and could be found on most major rail lines. Thousands of cars were built, not only by ACF®, but by the other major builders as well. The cars led very productive service lives  until the 1970s, and some may still be found in maintenance-of-way on-line service.
