More On Hopper Weighting

Posted on February 3rd, 2012, by Michael Rountree

With the recent acquisition of another Atlas 90-ton triple hopper (thanks TwinDad!), I figured this is a good opportunity to show how I am going about bringing the car weight up. Open hoppers are notoriously difficult, since they lack places to hide unsightly weights like the self-adhesive chunks I usually use in closed cars. The key is to use sheets of lead, which can be cut and fit in without being conspicuous.
