About the Model:

Arrowhead’s Rio Grande Committee Design hopper consists of 167 parts per car. This family of hoppers are the most detailed, part intensive open hoppers in HO Scale. We have matched the specific details of the Bethlehem Steel built cars, including the obvious details, like: Wine gate appliances, Wine hand brake and brake layout, and less obvious details, like: the combination 1942-design hand brake and 1955-design brake wheel, the unique retaining and release rod configurations, and the Pullman defect card holder.

That’s right: everything down to the correct styles of defect card holders are accurately matched.

How does the Bethlehem Rio Grande model differ from our Pullman-Standard Penn Central model, you ask?
