Description

In the early twentieth century there was an increasing need to transport dry goods in bulk by rail. To meet this growing demand, many railroads took excess boxcars and converted them into enclosed hoppers. Hatches were installed on the roof and inside sheeting was added to direct the flow through shoots built into the underframe. These unique cars were used well into the 1960’s and carried everything from phosphate, to dry concrete, to agricultural goods.
