These 33’ twin bay hoppers with offset sides are black with orange lettering and run on Bettendorf trucks. Built in the 1940s and serviced and repainted in the mid-1970s, these hoppers were used until the early 1980s. Illinois Central Gulf was a Class 1 railroad from 1972-1988 and arose from the merger of Illinois Central and Gulf, Mobile and Ohio.
