Pullman-Standard PS-2CD 4740 Covered Hopper

The Pullman-Standard PS-2CD 4740 cubic foot covered hopper was produced between 1966 and 1972, and remains in active service today throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. One of the most distinctive Pullman covered hoppers, this common 100-ton car is used in grain, fertilizer, and other bulk services. With more than 10,000 prototypes placed into service, the Tangent Scale Models HO-scale replica is a perfect addition to your layout or collection.

Our newest release of these fine replicas is from June 2012, featuring prototype cars from 1968 and 1970, and as usual, each model includes different details to match the era of production.

We also offer undecorated kits for those of you that want to build your own!
