Canadian Pacific Set #1 (As-Delivered, black, Script Lettering)

The Rapido Trains NSC 3800 Cylindrical Covered Hopper is based on covered hoppers designed for carrying bulk commodities like powdered minerals and industrial chemicals, including cement and potash. They are 100-tons in capacity with four hopper compartments totaling 3800-3850 cubic feet and are fitted with either four round or continuous trough hatches. Examples were built by all three of the major car builders in Canada - Marine Industries, Hawker-Siddeley and National Steel Car - and they have traveled to every corner of Canada and the contiguous United States.

Apart from the main carriers such as Canadian National and Canadian Pacific - which together acquired over 4,500 cars between 1965 and 1975 - close to a thousand cars were built for leasing companies, including North American Car Canada (NCHX), Canpotex (PTEX) and Procor (UNPX), while CGLX, NAHX, and more recently WREX, later acquired fleets secondhand. Many of these are still in service in 2022. This HO model features roadname-specific body styles, roof hatches and plenty of applied details. NSC 3800 Cylindrical Covered Hoppers come decorated in authentic schemes with multiple roadnumbers and are perfect for adding variety to your modern-era freight trains. They're part of the entire line of Rapido Trains HO Scale freight cars and containers.
