- The Prototype
The Pullman-Standard PS-2CD 4000 cubic
foot covered hopper was produced between 1962 and 1964, and remained in
service throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico until the early 2000s.
One of the most distinctive Pullman covered hoppers, this common
100-ton car is used in grain, fertilizer, and other bulk services.
BLMA Models is the first manufacturer to offer this unique model in N
Scale! With more than 2,000 prototypes placed into service, the BLMA
Models N Scale replica is a perfect addition to your layout or
- Burlingtion Route (CB&Q)
Painted in the
characteristic “PPG Carhide Hot Spray Gray” covered hopper color with
large “Burlington Route” placard (faithfully reproduced on our model!)
and Chinese red “Burlington” and associated lettering. These cars are
offered in three individual road numbers. These cars operated
throughout the CB&Q system and points beyond, and remained in
service for Burlington Northern nationwide into the early 1990's, when
they were repainted.
