C&O was so important to the movement of coal for the war effort that their mainline was targeted by German spies during the war. This run is available in singles, 2-packs and 3-packs for a total of 6 road numbers. War Emergency Composite Hoppers were built during the Second World War with wood siding and slope sheets at the direction of the War Production Board in hopes of saving as much steel as possible for the war effort. This was especially the case with hoppers that were usually built with copper-bearing steel to resist corrosion. The car sides were built with the Pratt truss design using a combination of vertical and diagonal ribs.SHIPPING Outside USA Through eBay’s Global Shipping Program ONLY !!!!!
