On the N&W, hoppers were the most common type of freight cars on their roster about a 4-to-1 ratio of hopper cars over all other cars combined. The H2a was the most common type and was numbered from 15,500 25,499; 26,000 26,999; 28,500 29,999; and 31,000 31,999. That's one impressive class! N&W also leased these hopper cars to the PRR and B&O where they were painted in their respective schemes. BLI offers these hoppers also. The Roanoke Shops built 13,500 H2a hoppers between 1948 1956 and approximately 2,000 were leased to the Pennsy. These handsomely crafted and highly detailed models are available in distinctly numbered 6-packs. For several road names, this run features A, B, and C packs - meaning if you purchase all three packs, you will have 18 distinctly numbered cars for a long string of coal haulers.
