SKNX HST 4550cf Covered Hopper Pack

Prototype Description:

Hawker Siddeley built the 4550 cf 4-bay covered hopper to meet the needs of the
Canadian Government’s increased demand for grain and potash transportation capacity.
HST’s 4550cf hoppers were built between November 1972 and December 1984. They’ve
worn a wide range of colorful paint and lettering schemes over the years and these
iconic cylindrical hoppers can still be found all across North America today.

The car design is based on a 263,000 pound gross rail load and AAR Plate C clearance
diagram with an empty weight of 63,200 pounds. Outside length is 59 ft with an extreme
height of 15 ft, an extreme width of 10 ft 8 in and a trough opening of 43 ft 6 in.
Cars are equipped with two types of Procor Toggle lock gates – the early unique
spiral cog design and the later Procor O1M articulated linkage design. Vibrator
bracket pads are located on the right side of the car only.

These cars have angled end panels (wider at the top than at the bottom),
short sill notches (about the width of the side ladders), L-shaped or V-shaped
short vertical end braces, 9 welded side panels, 11 roofwalk supports, narrow
triangular support on the end roofwalk step and a flat jack pad. Brake
equipment is generally mounted low on the shear plate; some cars have the
brake reservoir mounted halfway up the end sheet on the B-end.
