A lot of modern sand hoppers pass through town.
|Then one week, some old Pullman Standard hoppers come through. Just a few.|
|Notice the patterm of the Trinity Railcar curved sides and the flat ribbed sides of the Pullman Standard.|
70 ton covered hopper
They remind me of the Roundhouse kits in the hobby shop in Marshfield. That's been gone a long time.
It's an interesting Spring. In April, after this picture, we had 10 inches of snow.
and by April 15th, 2018, we had another storm for 2 days with 19 more inches. Snow banks are higher than we had all Winter.
