These hopper cars are being produced as part of the series of prototypically correct NYCS models being offered by the NYCSHS.  We have worked with Accurail to ensure that this model is as correct as possible yet affordable to most of our NYCSHS modelers.  It comes in kit form, but only requires a minimal amount of effort to complete.  Most modelers can put the car together in less than 15 minutes using only a hobby knife, screwdriver, and glue.

These cars are all from Lots 640-H & 641-H and were built for the NYCS in 1911 and modified with the panel sides at the NYCS Beach Grove Shops in 1936.  They were originally painted black, but were repainted in the red/brown color scheme in the early 1940s.  They were repainted again in black beginning in mid-1956.  They were probably beginning to wear out by this time and were scrapped over the next few years. We are offering these models in both colors so that more modelers can use them in the era they model.

The model comes with a prototypically lettered and painted body shell, detail parts, metal weights, Andrews trucks, Accumate (Kadee compatible) couplers, coupler & truck mounting screws, and Delrin wheelsets.  A complete assembly sheet comes with the kit and can also be viewed at: Accurail
