Bluford Shops announced 4 new N scale body styles this weekend at Trainfest in Milwaukee. These woodchip hoppers feature the highly detailed three bay hopper bodies that we all love, and add two distinct styles of woodchip extensions. Many railroads converted cars in this manner in order to increase the cubic foot capacity for what was a relatively light load compared to stone or coal. The first releases are depicted in the preliminary artwork below and will be on sale in 2013.
