Specific Item Information: The Union Electric Company, now owned by the Ameren Corporation, only rostered 16 of the AutoFlood II Hoppers. Today these can still be seen on the rails mixed with other hoppers with UCEX reporting marks. These will look great running coal on your layout with UCEX commemorative cars.
Model Information: ExactRail introduced this model in March of 2019. Included with each AutoFlood model is an accurate coal load. Great care was taken to design the load shape to sit offset within the body of the hopper. Like the prototype, many coal flood loads start with a more gentle slope and end with a steeper, abrupt angle.
Prototype History:
As 100-ton steel hoppers approached retirement in the 1980 and 1990's, railroads requested that car builders to lighten cars to improve tare weight and fuel economy. Johnstown America answered this call by producing the aluminum AutoFlood II coal hopper. Johnstown America provided an aerodynamic design with a lower center of gravity and the ability to be bottom or rotory unloaded. The AutoFlood II also included the all-new MegaFlo™ automatic discharge system. The result is a sleek, smooth-sided hopper with extreme, contemporary presence.
