Airslide Covered Hoppers

Conrail's H40 Airslides were originally leased by PC and were shopped at the GATX plant in East Chicago, IN, hence the lack of standard can openers and Conrail lettering fonts.
Tangent Scale Models produces an excellent HO scale model of these distinctive cars.
Car is ex GACX 46248.
Conrail 886798 is seen at Altoona, PA in the late 1970s. Car is ex GACX 46252.
