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:
The Union Pacific Railroad (reporting mark UP) is a freight hauling railroad that operates 8,500 locomotives over 32,100 route-miles in 23 states west of Chicago, Illinois and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Union Pacific Railroad network is the largest in the United States and employs 42,600 people. It is also one of the world's largest transportation companies.

Union Pacific Railroad is the principal operating company of Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE: UNP); both are headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the years Union Pacific Corporation has grown by acquiring other railroads, notably the Missouri Pacific, Chicago & North Western, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, and the Southern Pacific (including the Denver & Rio Grande Western).

Union Pacific Corporation's main competitor is the BNSF Railway, the nation's second largest freight railroad, which also primarily services the Continental U.S. west of the Mississippi River. Together, the two railroads have a duopoly on all transcontinental freight rail lines in the U.S.
