Another Announcement at Calgary's Supertrain Show: Potash Covered Hoppers

Also announced at the Calgary Supertain show today (and of interest to Canadian modellers): A National Steel Car Potash Service 4275 cu. ft. 3 Bay Covered Hopper in HO and N scale from North American Railcar Corporation (a division of Pacific Western Rail Systems).

The car, which will be released in December, this year, is operated in large numbers by Canpotex and the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, and in smaller numbers by other operators. 

To date, over 7,000 have been produced in early and late versions. They can be found across the U.S. and Canada on railways such as the CPR, CN, BNSF, CSX, NS and UP.
For more information, go to the PWRS website.
