The RICHARDSON TRGX 3-bay covered hopper was built by National Steel Car. It has not been made in any scale yet. Somebody like Atlas, Bachmann, or MTH would need to make the NSC 3-bay covered hoppers in N, HO, S, & O all at the same time so we could get these covered hoppers in O scale.
But what color schemes do you have for this model besides boring battleship grey?
The Potash Corp. has short versions of these covered hoppers.
The Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific have ordered new National Steel Car covered hoppers.
CN is buying new, 55-foot eight-inch jumbo hopper cars with 5,431 cubic feet of capacity.
The cars will be built by National Steel Car Ltd. at the company’s Hamilton plant.
"National Steel Car is very pleased that CP has committed to this significant investment in our industry-leading, 5,431 cubic foot, high-efficiency, Covered Hopper Grain Car. This newly designed and manufactured National Steel Car equipment will provide huge benefits to CP, our economy, and the entire grain delivery supply chain,"
