Ballast hoppers are non-revenue freight cars that are owned by the parent railroad or leased from a construction company. These cars originate from a ballast quarry and shuttled via manifest freight or unit maintenance of way (MOW) trains to the right of way construction site. These cars can be seen together in long sets depending how extensive the project may be.
