In 1980, the Province of Manitoba leased 400 grain hoppers in order to increase car supply for Manitoba’s farmers. To identify the cars
belonging to this lease fleet, one of these placards was bolted to the center of each car, and these lasted well into the 2000s as the cars roamed North America. Now you can reproduce this detail on your covered hopper fleet using our finely-executed placards. These placards are only available from Tangent Scale Models – either by ordering direct or through your local hobby shop!
