- Calculated at Checkout
Atlas O Trainman Burlington AAR 70 Ton 3-Bay Open Hopper New Paint Scheme. Road name Burlington #172731 (Black/White/Red). 3RL. This familiar hopper was an industry standard on many railroads since the 1930s. It was adopted by the AAR as a recommended design, but fell out of favor by the mid-1950s. While offering greater capacity over cars with conventional flat sides, the original open hoppers created corrosive interaction between acidic coal and the car's joints, leading to costly rebuilding programs.
