Industrial Rail New York Central Covered Hopper #892019

About This Model

Industrial Rail's model of NYC 892019 is very loosely based on the prototype car.  While both cars are 4-bay covered hoppers and wear the same road number and build date, that is where the similarities end.  The IR model is actually based on the Norfolk & Western HC-3 covered hopper built by the Greenville Steel Car Company.
