I have an opportunity to buy a new six pack of hopper cars from my local train store. I have a Pere Marquette 1227 Berk and am looking for some prototypical freight. I'm new to the hobby and have a couple of questions. Are these prototypical for this loco as the C&O owned the Pere Marquette for a while? These were made in 2000, are they standard size? Are they a quality built car? The price on these are awesome and would allow me to build a nice consist at a low cost. Any help you guys can provide would be great! Thanks in advance!
