The prototype was the first mass-produced covered hopper car for bulk commodities such as cement, sand, grain, etc. The plastic parts in this kit are molded with very fine detail. All ladder rungs, brake rods, and grab irons are formed metal wire. The roof walk is etched metal. Plastic 33 in. wheelsets are included. The model has been designed to accept the Kadee® #78 scale size coupler, which has to be supplied by the modeler.
