Has anyone made a modern PS Covered hopper, ie a grain hopper with rib sides and 3 bays used in the 1970's and on for grain/potash service? Or would anyone have parts to scratch build?? I think I could build the car sides, ends etc but the hopper bottoms would be a real challenge.

Any help is appreciated.

Mr Rocket Rider
Or should I just call you Rocket??
I buy HO scale models of what I want, then use a 1:29th scale ruler to enlarge it. I tried to build this car as the HO, but ended up making a flat bottom and making a 4 piece (thingy) I lost the word for it. Note I alwsy get board when it comes to the detail parts. I seem to forget them.
The cat walk material has stopped me in the past until I found some rolls of different screen mesh at Michaels Store ,,Crafts.

I have an old thread someplace on this.


I would be very greatful to Brian B. if he could find Burls thread on his ballast car, I lost my GRYs issue.
