Album Info:"Hey, what's that?" Ever been out photographing trains and feel dumb because you don't know what kind of rolling stock you shot? Of course not, you arent stupid! But you had to learn about rolling stock some where, and this is the place to do it. This album will help all uneducated railfans to learn about the Hopper! A hopper car is a type of railroad freight car used to transport loose bulk commodities such as coal, ore, grain, track ballast, and so on. In this album we will explore all the different types of open & covered hopper and even a gondola or two.
