In 1967 the 4740 cubic foot capacity covered hoppers were the successor to the earlier 4427 cubic foot design. PS responded to increasing demand for efficiency by the railroads and shippers alike carrying more per trip then the earlier covered hoppers. Designed to carry bulk commodities such as grain these cars roamed the rails of North America for decades attesting to their utilitarian functionality. This car type can still be seen today in service.
