Bachmann Silver Series HO 18644 Duluth Missabe and Iron Range ore caralready assembled is based on the ones built in 1952.

The modern open-top hopper cars are a bit more sophisticated than whatthey might look! While these railroad freight cars today almost alwayshaul coal or varying forms of aggregates such as ballasting (a termwhich refers to the crushed rock used under the railroad tracks that actsas support and cushioning) coal or iron ore they have a number ofdifferent drop-bottoms to empty their cargo. Ore jennies are yet anothertype and these little cars get their size for a reason. They are builtspecifically for hauling taconite pellets (iron ore) which are much moredense (i.e. heavier) than most other types of bulk materials like coaland stone which gives the car their small but effective size (thesecars are predominantly found in the northwest Great Lake region such asMinnesota and Michigan where large concentrations of iron ore continuesto be mined).
