Each owner of the ARI hopper cars had differing requirements for roof loading hatch styles. Classonemodelworks.com provides the proper roof loading hatch variant for each car owner, verified through photos and aerial photography. The car owners that have been selected represent four different variants, and we have provided them all.
Classonemodelworks.com provides accurate paint and lettering taken from photographs of the prototype, and numbering that matches the class numbers for each operator or railroad. Our hopper cars come with the correct body color and decoration schemes used by each car owner. All lettering on the car accurately reflects the prototype markings of each car.
These hopper cars have been accurately reproduced from prototype drawings and hand-measured field dimensions of the prototype cars, right down to every visible detail. Classonemodelorks.com stands for accuracy and we strive to provide that with every model we produce.
Classonemodelworks.com believes in providing models that accurately depict the prototype equipment. Keeping that as our core, we are proud to provide highly-detailed car ladders, brake gear and piping, and we even include body side impactors if the owner had them provided on its car.
