The new style woodchip hopper!  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!  Hope you like it!
