PRR H21 4-Bay Hopper Cars


History:  1911 thru 1917 70 ton H21a "quad" hoppers were introduced for coal service. During 1922 and 1923 all early H21 hoppers were converted to H21a's by replacing the 50 ton trucks with 70 ton trucks equiping them for coal service and bringing the total to 36,000 H21a hopper cars. The original 1909 thru 1930 quad hoppers were built with the "old style" double door hopper. During the 1930's and early 1940's all old style double-door hoppers were replaced with the "saw tooth" hopper, increasing capacity by 39 to 40 cubic feet making them easier to maintain.

The history of the Pennsylvania Railroad rolling stock lettering is as follows:
January, 1930 Circle Keystone Lettering was applied.
June, 1954 Shadow Keystone lettering was applied.
July, 1956 Plain Keystone (black car) was applied.
Early 1960's PRR Initials started.

Kit Includes:  Injection molded plastic body, hopper doors, wine door latches with door bracing, coal load, interior bracing, end mounted brake wheel or top mounted brake wheel, X2f couplers, one piece molded trucks, and 33" chilled wheels with RP-25 flanges on brass axles.  The production molds were made using the original PRR drawings as our guide.

Associated Equipment Available:  Add coal loads made by Blue Mountain to your hopper car rolling stock. Two loads are included in each package.
