ScaleTrains HO Scale: Rivet Counter - PS-2CD 4785cf Covered Hopper - Penn Central 

The PS-2CD 4785 Covered Hopper was a missing variation in the Pullman-Standard Covered Hopper family until now. The 4785s low side sill visually differentiates the carbody from its high sill siblings (4727, 4740, and 4750). Since the 1960s, these cars have crisscrossed North America in singles and groups of hoppers. Our Rivet Counter series model feature numerous roof hatch, outlet gate, running board, and end “cage” support variations per railroad, road number, and era.
