Prototype Description: On the N&W, hoppers were the most common type of freight cars on their roster about a 4-to-1 ratio of hopper cars over all other cars combined. The H2a was the most common type and was numbered from 15,500 25,499; 26,000 26,999; 28,500 29,999; and 31,000 31,999. That's one impressive class!

N&W also leased these hopper cars to the PRR and B&O where they were painted in their respective schemes. BLI offers these hoppers, also. The Roanoke Shops built 13,500 H2a hoppers between 1948 - 1956 and approximately 2,000 were leased to the Pennsy.

Road Name History:
Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.
