The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O, CO) formed in 1869, later based in Cleveland, Ohio, tapped the coal reserves of West Virginia, established Newport News, VA with coal piers on the Atlantic, and forged a rail link to our Midwest, serving the USA States of IL, IN, KY, MI, NY, OH, PA, VA, WADC, WV, and WI. In 1962 the C&O became part of the CHESSIE SYSTEM along with the B&O and WM Railways. In the 1980s the CHESSIE combined with SCL and L&N, (Family Lines), to become a key portion of CSX Transportation, adding a substantial part of CONRAIL in 1999.

The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad (DRGW), " Through the Rockies," was a major origin of coal and mineral traffic, and the epitome of mountain railroading, operating the highest mainline rail line in the USA. In 1988, Rio Grande, purchased the Southern Pacific Railroad. The unified company took the Southern Pacific name due to its recognition among shippers. By the early 1990s, D&RGW became largely dependent on hauling high-quality coal from the mine fields of Colorado and Utah.  In 1996 D&RGW was sold and merged into the Union Pacific Railroad.
Need specific load styles to suit your layout?     Hay Brothers produces many different and very realistic styles available separately.
We are proud to announce this bright new addition to our Hopper Car Fleet!  Not long after the 50-Ton, 2-Bay Hoppers were perfected, and with many Railroad improvements in trackage, springs, trucks, and couplers along with ever more powerful Steam Engines, the want for a bigger, more economical hopper to haul the burgeoning Coal Industry's product, led to the development of the 70-Ton Hopper.  Many variations were tried between the early 1920s and to well after WWII, featuring a diverse number of ribs, and panels of assorted sizes.  FT  has chosen the popular and common 9-Panel type for a Z Scale version as it can be more easily adapted to the tiny lettering and data needed for this size.  It's a 40' car, a swell Z size, no bigger than the smallest of the steel boxcars!  It employs FT 's own trucks and knuckle couplers with the smaller housing, Will's metal wheelsets, and for a realistic touch, Hay Brothers Custom Loads!  The first of this FT  5000 Series was painted for ATSF, SANTA FE, always a popular Railroad Hobby Line!
