Beginning in the 1960s, covered hoppers began to replace 40' boxcars for grain service. The Pullman-Standard 4427 cubic foot, low-side covered hopper was one car that made this transition successful. Graced with many colorful paint schemes and plying the rails through all corners of North America, these cars carried dry commodities, including: grain, corn, wheat, flour, and many other forms of dry bulk. The Pullman-Standard 4427 low-side, covered hopper is a classic of North American railroading!
