Front Range Covered Hoppers Front Range Covered Hoppers...
Below are photos of my Front Range covered hoppers.  These kits are out of production and well represent the WM cars.  The ends of the car do not have the "bird cage" feature of the B&O and C&O cars, but I am overlooking that short coming.  I usually find undecorated or ones decorated for other roads.  I don't think Front Range ever made a decent Chessie one, but the WM ones below were factory decorated.  The rest are custom painted and decaled.  This the most common class of car on the East End, as the Penn Glass & Sand Facility at Berkeley Springs created hundreds of loads a year of sand on the East End.
