ExactRail has finally announced a new N scale model, the Johnstown America AutoFlood II Hopper in a variety of road names and numbers. As 100-ton hoppers approached retirement in the 1970 and 1980’s, railroads begged car builders to lighten cars to improve tare weight and fuel economy. Johnstown America answered this call by producing the aluminum AutoFlood II coal hopper. Johnstown America provided an aerodynamic design with a lower center of gravity and the all-new MegoFlo™ automatic discharge system. The result is a sleek, smooth-sided hopper with extreme, contemporary presence.
Included with each AutoFlood model is an accurate coal load. Great care was taken to design the load shape to sit offset within the body of the hopper. Like the prototype, many coal flood loads start with a more gentle slope and end with an steeper, abrupt angle.
