HOn3 3-Bay Hoppers


Pre-production sample of EBT 3-Bay Hopper No. 951, Weathered

The steel 3-bay hopper is a must-have for model railroaders interested in the wonderful little East Broad Top Railroad (EBT), as well as for freelancers looking for a classic piece of rolling stock history. A variety of road numbers are available with either 30s-era lettering or the 40s-era herald in weathered or non-weathered paint. This release also includes a version with “Rock Car” printed on it, which is available with optional weathering. Additional versions include a painted, unlettered black car and a car with only reporting data.

We also are offering a limited edition release of 3-bay hoppers with a D&RGW livery. Available in two road numbers, 950 and 955, these cars feature the famous Flying Grande herald in weathered or non-weathered paint schemes. Although historically this car didn’t run on the Rio Grande, many of our customers have requested hopper cars in this style to run with the rest of their consists.
