Arrowhead Models HO scale ‘Committee Design’ hopper

Design by committee isn’t usually a ringing endorsement, but these new HO scale 70-ton coal hoppers from Arrowhead Models could certainly turn the tide.

The committee in question included Pennsylvania RR, Chesapeake & Ohio, and Norfolk & Western freight car engineers with the goal of developing a standard 70-ton coal hopper. Each railroad built a prototype car in its own shops in 1958 after the design was developed so it could be tested.
