SCL hoppers : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I am interested in modeling a SCL center flow hopper. Did SCL even have any center flows? If so, how many bays did they have? Also, does anyone offer decals for them? Any info would be greatly appriciated.

Paul is correct of course - I forgot about the SCL's "own" Centerflows when I posted my first answer. This series began at 260000 but I don't remember without checking records at home how far it went - but I think it was only a few cars, say 25 or so. They were class LO-4.

The SCL did indeed have centerflow hoppers. I'm at a loss to remember the numbers or how many bays, but they were painted bright yellow with black FL lettering. They were delivered about 1976. I have a picture somewhere.

SCL had five, 835700-835704 I believe (going from memory here), ex SAL 35700-704. Decals are out there - I think the Microscale SAL covered hopper set that came out a couple of years ago.
