B&O #835060

This little project was a relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon. This is an Atlas cylindrical hopper and while there weren't many of these on the railroad, I though it was a neat car, although the tooling can't compare to the Intermountain version. 

First is a photo of B&O #601025 taken by Bruce Gage in 1988:

Here is my version:


  1. Very nice model Mr. Tillery, if I may ask what part of Northern Kentucky bare you modelling, the old short line?

  2. Thanks Peter I appreciate your kind words. I haven't decided what part of CSX I will model on the new layout, however after running trains on Anthony Hardy's fantastic EK sub last week, a coal branch might be in the future.
