Beginning in the 1960’s, covered hoppers took over 40' boxcars for grain service. The Pullman Standard 4427 cubic foot low-side covered hopper is one of the legendary cars that helped make this transition successful. Graced with many colorful paint schemes and plying the rails through all corners of North America, these cars carried numerous dry commodities including grain, corn, wheat, flour and many other forms of dry bulks.
The Pullman Standard 4427 low-hip covered hopper is a classic of North American railroading!
Unfortunately we have been unable to source much information about the West Central Cooperative. We have been told that it was part of the Far-Mar-Co umbrella. This would make sense as some of the later delivered West Central 4427s were repainted into Far-Mar-Co colors in the 1970s. These cars were often seen roaming the west on a host of railroads. These 1964 delivered cars numbered from 3106 to 3111, were the first 6 cars leased to West Central, another 10 cars would follow shortly after.
