PWRS Santa Fe Hopper Car Set H-1019-6B
I have been updating my freight car master list and on-line index with some older cars that have been in inventory for some time. The beginnings of a Santa Fe grain train (about 25 cars so far) are accounted for.
Among this fleet of Mineral Red colored cars are three grey hoppers with the blue "Santa Fe" billboard letters. These cars are the second of two three-car sets released by Pacific Western Rail Systems (PWRS). At the time PWRS was working with InterMountain Railway Co. to release sets of unique paint schemes.
Since then, InterMountain has released their own cars in the schemes commissioned by PWRS but with different road numbers. There are at least six cars in this scheme released by InterMountain with different numbers and slight variations in the markings.
The three hoppers in the set in my collection are ATSF 315965, ATSF 315979, and ATSF 315994.
Pages have been added in the freight car index for each of these cars. The buttons below will take you to the pages. Each page has a slideshow of the respective car with more detail images and varying angles.
These cars represent hoppers in the Sana Fe GA-905 class numbered 315900-315999. Even though this scheme very uncommon, I chose to add some to my fleet because, quite simply, I like them! They make an excellent accent to mix-up a brown fleet of Santa Fe grain hoppers
