Athearn HO MP Eagle/Buzzsaw Logo ACF Covered Hopper 3-Pack

Description

Athearn ATH81070 HO ACF 2970 Covered Hopper – MP Reporting Marks, Eagle/Buzzsaw Logo, 3 Car Pack

The American Car and Foundry CenterFlow covered hopper was available in several configurations and Missouri Pacific purchased large a large number of 2-bay and 3-bay versions. In the 1960s, American Car and Foundry introduced the Centerflow design. The car’s rounded body provided structural strength without the added weight of bracing, as well as making gravity unloading easier. This 2-bay car came in a 2,970-cubic foot capacity. On the MP system, these cars handled loads such as cement, sand, roofing granules and similar denser bulk commodities.

For accounting purposes, ownership of these cars was divided between MP, TP and C&EI. This model represents one of the 2-bay versions with MP reporting marks and the eagle/buzzsaw emblem.
