As 100-ton coal hoppers approached retirement in the 1970’s and 1980’s, railroads begged car builders to lighten cars to improve fuel economy when cars returned empty to the mines. Johnston America answered this call by producing the aluminum AutoFlood II coal hopper. Produced from the 1990’s to the present, the AutoFlood II has appeared in over 20 utility paint schemes, including: BNSF, CSXT, and many repaints are already appearing. ExactRail offers this never before produced car with complete interior details, removable coal loads, wire grab irons and etched metal cross walks.
