Released in 2003 Atlas O three rail Louisville & Nashville war emergency hoppers in their original boxes with custom coal loads by Don Kane Jr of the OGR Forum. Atlas O numbers 6428-1, -2, -3, -4. $160.00. The stirrups on the ends of the cars are fragile and break easily.  On the "31190" hopper one stirrup is missing and two of the other stirrups were repaired with CA glue.  A brace holding a ladder rung was also broken and repaired with CA glue on the "31190" and "31377".  Please look carefully at the photos.  Buyer pays UPS shipping to the continental US only.

With the onset of WWII, sheet steel became in short supply due to critical national defense applications. In 1942 the War Production Board authorized the design of seven standard freight cars that would utilize "composite" construction with wood replacing the sheet steel wherever feasible. Saving approximately 2 1/2 tons of steel when compared to all-steel construction, the war emergency hopper was one of the successful designs. Over 11,000 of these hoppers were constructed from 1942 through 1945 and many remained in service either in original form or rebuilt with steel sides, throughout the 1950's and 1960’s.
