- 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
- Southern Pacific (SP)
Painted in the gray “Houston
repaint” scheme from the later 1970's! These cars - available in three
road numbers - feature the distinctive large “Southern Pacific”
centered on the car in black, as well as the bright yellow box with
legible “Interior Coated for Edible or Chemical Commodity” lettering.
Southern Pacific cars still operate on UP rails, and SP ordered very
similar 3920cc hoppers from Pullman-Standard that are virtually
identical to the PS-2CD 4000.
