ScaleTrains: Thrall Carbon Black Covered Hoppers

History

A byproduct of the petrochemical refining industry, carbon black is a fine, powdery substance with a consistency sometimes described as being akin to soot.  Deep black in color, one of its major consumers is the automotive industry, where it’s used as filler in tires, belts, and other rubber products.  It also sees usage as a pigment in inks, paints, and plastic products, all of which make it a popular commodity with a variety of industries.  Hauling it, however, can be challenging thanks to its physical properties.  Covered hoppers are typically used to handle carbon black, with unique designs dating back to the 1920s.
