WITH ROOF HATCHES!

Hatches are painted but not installed.

This 40’ standard box car with single door is brown with white lettering and runs on Bettendorf trucks. In the early 20th century there was an increasing need to transport dry goods in bulk by rail. To meet this growing demand, many railroads took excess boxcars and converted them into enclosed hoppers. Hatches were installed on the roof to facilitate loading of granulated loads, such as phosphate, dry concrete, or granulated sugar. This car carried powdered clay.
