This ACF hopper was one of the 1984 NASG "Special Projects" cars; the first time a model railroading organization had successfully imported a brass model. This model has the open center section (phase II). Jim Kindraka wrote a behind-the-scenes kind of article about how this model came about in the July-August 2015 issue of the NASG's Dispatch. 65 models were produced by Ajin of Korea, and imported unpainted.

Model Introduced:1993
Product Type:Brass
Finishpainted
The models, imported from Korea, had a gray primer coat of paint on them. Bill's model of this "wagon top" hopper includes additional draft gear and cut-levers. The second photo is by Ed Kirstatter lettered for the later era of the 1950s. Ed's version has been painted with Scalecoat M.O.W. grey and he decaled it with John Hall #112 set made especially for these cars. The trucks were left black because that is what the B&O did. Kadee S #802 couplers were used. Ed has the pilot model bought directly from River Raisin.
