The 3500 Cubic Foot Dry-Flo Covered Hopper was a commodity hauling backbone for over 40 years. In 1959, General American started producing Dry-Flo covered hoppers in response to customer demands for larger hoppers capable of handling bulk commodities. Covered hopper innovations during the 1950s proved valuable to shippers; they wanted covered hoppers that could handle larger quantities of specialized commodities such as oats and malt. These models were designed to match the prototype - down to the last detail! Engineered from prototype blue prints, the N Scale Dry-Flo will feature an accurate attention to both body and paint detail as you've come to expect from Atlas!
