Walthers HO scale Trinity two-bay covered hopper
A TrinityRail 39-foot, 3,281-cubic-foot-capacity two-bay covered hopper has been added to the WalthersMainline. The HO scale model is based on a contemporary freight car used to haul frac sand, roofing granules, cement, and other dense materials.

Our sample is decorated
as General American Marks Co. no. 9837, part of the leasing company’s 9722 through 9952 series built under TrinityRail lot no. F11026 in November and December 2011. The full-size car has high side sills, which make it easier to reach the vibrator brackets and outlet gates. The WalthersMainline model has three round hatch covers. Sales literature from TrinityRail indicates the car can be built with other hatch configurations.
