Dear HO Modlers: Please find below sample photos of the soon to be released new tooling for the Canadian Built Slab Side Hopper. We are taking reservations now. We expect 6 road numbers of each type.

These Slab-Side Hoppers were made in the 1950's by National Steel Car and Maine Industries. The prototypes for this series of Hoppers were in regular use from 1950 to the late 1970's.  These hoppers were used only by Canadian railways.  "Slab-Sides" hoppers carried numerous kinds of bulk powdered commodities that had to be kept dry; like chemicals used in agricultural to dust from zinc processing.

   Several were different variations for the four Canadian railways that owned these unique cars; Canadian Pacific Railway, Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo, Canadian National Railway, and Pacific Great Eastern.
