MoPac Subsidiary - Chicago Heights Terminal
In about '82 or '83, Thrall Car built several hundred aluminum covered hoppers (cylindrical I think) that were assigned to the CHTT. They had the screaming eagle on them and CHTT initials. I was told they were to be assigned to Kansas and Nebraska. After they went south, I never saw them again. The cars were the natural silver color of aluminum. ("Tuch" Santucci)

There are triple bay covered hoppers lettered CHTT but with full Mo-Pac lettering... in series CHTT 719500. (Edward Bridges)
