Coming Soon! HO Scale PS-2CD 4427 Covered Hopper

Beginning in the 1960’s, covered hoppers took over 40' boxcars for grain service. The Pullman Standard 4427 cubic foot low-side covered hopper is one of the legendary cars that helped make this transition successful. Graced with many colorful paint schemes and plying the rails through all corners of North America, these cars carried numerous dry commodities including grain, corn, wheat, flour and many other forms of dry bulks.

The Pullman Standard 4427 low-hip covered hopper is a classic of North American railroading!

I think you should include Agway in the next release, whenever that is.

I submit to you that Agway is the largest leaser of the PS 4427 that has never been done in any form. A LOT of eastern modelers could use one or two of these. If you can do cars for leasers that had fewer than ten cars, then I think you can do one for Agway, which leased 90 of them in two groups.

Glad to have you back!

I’m disappointed, though. I was really hoping that you would include the TLDX – Agway cars in the new run of PS 4427s. I guess I’ll just have to bother you regularly until you comply.

Looking forward to more good stuff in the future!
