OK, back to where we were.


We're building a list of MDC/Roundhouse known hopper road names.


We're at 25.


If some one knows the product part number for each road name variation, feel free to add them


Thanks


Randy

Hi Everyone

Has anyone noticed the new PIKO Starter set with the 2 bay hopper? It looks to be the same casting as the MDC/Roundhouse hoppers listed below.

I've added a couple hoppers since the last post but still not finding many

Today at a train show I seen a Lackawana grey one, later issue as it was in the Roundhouse box.
Total I have around 20 I believe and some are covered whichis kinda neat.
I add Kadee bodymounts & USA bettendorf trucks with steel wheel as the USA trucks will lower them a bit.

Do you know that Piko bought the molds from MDC and are making all the cars again? They are out and I know Art Knapp's has them in stock, I am sure other places will also have them.
