BS-14371 BN 70T 14 Panel Hopper

Burlington Northern - 14-Panel Rib Side hopper - with coal load

Burlington Northern was born from the 1970 merger of Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Burlington Route (which GN and NP jointly controlled) and Spokane Portland & Seattle (also jointly controlled by GN and NP.) The 1980 acquisition of Frisco gave the expanded BN an astonishing reach, from Vancouver, British Columbia in one corner of the system and Pensacola, Florida in the opposite corner! BN inherited this group of hoppers from Great Northern in the merger.

Chesapeake & Ohio - 14-Panel Rib Side hopper - with coal load

Chesapeake & Ohio picked up this group of hoppers secondhand from Helm Leasing (they had originally been in the fleets of Pittsburgh & Lake Erie and Erie Lackawanna.) Because these cars had relatively narrow panels between the ribs, Chessie made smaller stencils to fit the logo over a pair of panels..

BS-14391 CSXT 70T 14 Panel Hopper

CSX (ex-Chessie System) - 14-Panel Rib Side hopper - with  load

CSX came together in stages over a seven year period. The Chessie System Railroads holding company merged with Seaboard Coast Line Industries holding company to create the CSX holding company in November of 1980. The nine Class One railroads under CSX remained officially separate entities until the last week of 1982 when SCL and L&N were merged to form Seaboard System with Clinchfield, Georgia, Atlanta & West Point and Western of Alabama following over the next month. A few months later, Western Maryland was merged into Baltimore & Ohio. In July of 1986, Seaboard System was re-named CSX Transportation and the first CSXT painted equipment began to appear. In April of ’87, B&O merged into Chesapeake & Ohio and four months later, C&O was merged into CSXT. In the CSX era, these cars could often be found in stone service or even hauling discarded railroad ties. “Stone” loads are included on this run.

BS-14401 CSXT 70T 14 Panel Hopper

CSX (ex-WofA) - 14-Panel Rib Side hopper - with  load

CSX not only inherited these 14-Panel cars from the Chessie fleet. Several railroads in Seaboard System’s family tree also had them. This group came from Western Railway of Alabama and were re-numbered into the CSXT 996000 series. The new reporting marks in white rather than yellow was probably a function of the shop where the cars were re-numbered. Seaboard System shops often (but not always) used white for quick re-numbering jobs and yellow for full repaints. Like their ex-Chessie brethren, these CSXT ex-WofA cars tended to carry stone or discarded ties for their new owner. “Stone” loads are included on this run.

BS-14411 CASO 70T 14 Panel Hopper

Canada Southern - 14-Panel Rib Side hopper - with  load

For most of its history, Canada Southern operated as a subsidiary in the New York Central System. They ran from the Detroit area, northeast on the Canadian side of Lake Erie to the Niagara Falls – Buffalo area. In the 1960s and ‘70s Canada Southern/NYC, CN, Ontario Northland, P&LE, and TH&B pooled a fleet of hoppers to move iron ore from a mine in Dane, Ontario to steel mills in the United States. The round stencil you see near the middle of the car was applied to all of the CASO cars in this service (as well as many of the cars from the other railroads involved.)  This is our fourth run of cars with the Dane ore service stencil: Ontario Northland and CASO offset side cars plus the TH&B hoppers with a white dot (also assigned to Dane.) We have also released P&LE and CN hoppers without the stencil which were also used in this service.
