  • $ 20.72


Item Number: MTL05500140

This 33' twin bay hopper with offset sides is painted black with orange herald and white reporting mark, and logo and includes a coal load. It was built in March 1948, serviced in April 1974 and runs on Bettendorf trucks. The Illinois Central Railroad was chartered in 1851 to build a railroad from Cairo, IL, to Galena, IL. In 1972, the Illinois Central merged with the parallel Gulf Mobile & Ohio to form Illinois Central Gulf. By 1990 the road was a trimmed and rationalized "Chicago-to-Gulf" railroad, returned to ownership by individual shareholders, and operational management by a team of serious-minded railroad people. The name Illinois Central Railroad was restored.
