Milwaukee, WI - Wm. K. Walthers, Inc. announces the release of Walthers
N Scale Ballast Hoppers, the first ballast hoppers available in N scale.
Since hoppers are subject to rough loads and handling, they are some of
the strongest cars built. Open top hoppers transport a wide variety of
materials that don't need protection from the weather. Railroads always
maintain a fleet of ballast hoppers for moving ballast where it's
Walthers ready-to-run, styrene N Scale Ballast Hoppers feature finely
detailed stirrups and grab irons, universal couplers and longitudinal

$29.98. Park a string of Walthers N Scale Ballast Hoppers next to the
