I got pictures of several of the 17XXXX series Covered Hoppers yesterday down
here in South Carolina.
Couple of questions:
When would this series been built?
I noticed that they are marked "Grain loading only" but they also are displaying
hazard placards? Any idea what they are carrying?

>From the modeling side:

Are there N-Scale versions of these available?
Thanks in adavance...
