Louisville & Nashville (L&N) in the striking “Original Dixie Line” scheme from 1957. These cars feature the L&N brown mineral carbody with heap shields and with the “Dixie Line” lettering spelled out on the right side of the car. It is worth noting that this was the L&N standard coal hopper design, with a humongous fleet numbering 8,150 cars built between 1957 and 1961. While these cars were the backbone of L&N’s coal hauling operations, they were regularly seen offline in the South, Midwest, and Northeast. Our fine models are available in twelve road numbers, plus unnumbered models with decals available separately from Tangent to easily create a fleet of customized hoppers.
