I would love to find a large source of 55 or 70 ton hoppers.  I have somewhere between 250-350 currently, but would like to get that number up around 500 for my next layout.  I have been buying them on ebay and scouring Google but the going is slow.  What about a custom run by either of these companies? I have not really kept up with the, but believe MDC was sold/discontinued?, and Athearn was bought by someone (Walthers?).  I sure miss the days when I could pick them up for $4-8 each from the hobby shops.  150 $25 hoppers is not realistic. Thanks for any suggestions.
