Accurail NYC 3-Bay Hopper (Lot 824-H)
40’8″ All Steel Self-Clearing Offset Hopper Kit
NYCSHS Modeler’s committee wanted to offer a custom decorated Accurail 3 bay hopper as a lot 824-H. The 824-H was built by General American in 1952 numbered NYC 904000-904999. The road number is homage to the society’s 50th anniversary and is authentic.
Two hopper kits built out by Seth Lakin, NYCSHS Modelers’ Committee Chair.
The art work is laid out directly over the top of the Builders photo of the hopper, so it should be just right. The end lettering is a touch smaller than in the photos, but it needed to be in order to print properly in that restricted amount of space.
These easy-to-build HO Scale plastic car kits feature a one-piece body with details molded in place. Decorated models feature authentic paint and lettering schemes with end reporting marks. In addition, the trucks feature nonmagnetic axles, and the coupler pockets accepts Kadee(R) No. 5 couplers. Also features exceptionally free-rolling wheels. Set of decals with six road numbers and 6 shop stencils are included with kit. Decals come with same paint color background as the car.
MSRP $31.63 NYCSHS member price is $25.30 and that is 20% off MSRP.
Shipping is extra and Ohio residents must add 8% Ohio sales tax.
