Class H30

The PRR started building 70-ton H30 class covered hoppers in 1944. This number grew to 1325 by 1952, with an additional 250 H30A class cars appearing by the end of 1953.

PC 32322- Class H30 sand car 05-77

Heading east (north) through Akron with a load of sand, I believe this car started life as a PRR car. Many of these PC cars never got Conrail paint and could be found in green into the late 80's.
