Micro-Trains N Scale: 33' Twin Bay Hopper - Reading
This 33’ twin bay hopper with offset sides is black with white lettering and runs on Bettendorf trucks. Belonging to a series of nearly 1500 cars, this 2,260 cubic foot capacity two-bay hopper was rebuilt in 1967 by Reading. The Reading Railroad was one of the most famous anthracite coal shippers in the northeast United States. After the decline of coal following WWII, Reading began a slow decline and eventually declared bankruptcy in 1971.
