ALL NEW TOOLING & LOADS
A new body style, the 3400 Series!  When helpful and profitable uses for woodchips were realized after mid-century, and they transcended being "trash," there was a scramble to figure out a way to transport them via the railroads.  Old hopper cars, both ribbed and offset were pressed into service.  The addition of "extended tops" made the transport of the lighter-than-coal chiploads effective and productive.  All manner of tops were conceived, from wood planking and braced ply-boards to welded steel sheeting and scrap siding.  This new woodchip hopper represents the use of older refurbished offset hoppers with a welded sheet-steel extension.  It's very dramatic and a swell addition to the FT Hopper Portfolio!

 A woodchip hopper from the famous and enormous ROCK ISLAND LINE.  Renown in song, it maintained a modern system throughout it's history until fierce competition in the 1970's. One source of income after mid-century was woodchips, once considered trash!  The RI served essentially the entire mid-USA (14 plus States) and in doing so, ran through the forests of mid-America.  It's rolling stock would have been seen everywhere throughout our "Heartland!"  Here's a 2-pk. of the new offset woodchippers from the traditional red, white and black RI era, with realistic loads created by Hay Brothers.

The UNION PACIFIC, headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, is the largest Railroad Network in the USA, operating 8,000 locomotives over 32,000 route-miles west of the Mississippi River! Begun in 1862, UP grew by acquiring, one-by-one, almost all the large Rail Companies of the Western States. UP and competitor BNSF have a duopoly on all transcontinental freight rail lines in the USA. One source of income after mid-20th century was woodchips, once considered trash! Their use in paper production, bedding on the farm, mulches, playground surfacing, forest fire prevention, and alternative fuel made them a profitable haul. Old hopper cars were refurbished, given top-extensions and pressed into service. All manner of extensions were conceived, from wood planking and braced ply boards to welded steel sheeting and scrap parts from irreparable cars, to increase capacities for this lighter load. Here's a pair of woodchip hoppers with custom loads by Hay Brothers.

The Green Bay and Western Railroad (GBW) served central Wisconsin for almost 100 years before it was absorbed into the Wisconsin Central in 1993. The GBW was also known as the Green Bay Route. Wisconsin Central was purchased by Canadian National in 2001. One source of income after mid-century was Woodchips, once considered trash! Their use in paper production, bedding on the farm, mulches, playground surfacing, forest fire prevention, and an alternative fuel made them a profitable haul. Old hopper cars were refurbished, given top-extensions and pressed into service. All manner of extensions were conceived, from wood planking and braced ply boards to welded steel sheeting and scrap parts from irreparable cars to increase capacities for this lighter load. Full Throttle presents a pair of Green Bay and Western Offset-Side Woodchip Hoppers, with realistic loads created by Hay Brothers.

Chartered by the state of Kentucky in 1850, the Louisville and Nashville carried freight and passengers continuously for 132 years becoming a premier Southern Railroad. It's network reached from OH and MO to LA and FL. In 1902 J.P. Morgan delivered the L&N to the Atlantic Coast Line RR and it's successor, the Seaboard Coast Line purchased all remaining L&N shares in 1971, while AMTRAK assumed the passenger service. By 1982, Seaboard System Railroad absorbed the L&N and in 1986 changed it's name to CSX Transportation (CSX) which now operates former L&N rail lines. One source of income after mid-century was woodchips, once considered trash! Their use in paper production, bedding on the farm, mulches, playground surfacing, forest fire prevention, and alternative fuel made them a profitable haul. Old hopper cars were refurbished, given top-extensions and pressed into service. All manner of extensions were conceived, from wood planking and braced ply boards to welded steel sheeting and scrap parts from irreparable cars, to increase capacities for this lighter load.
