PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:

The 3-bay CenterFlow covered hopper first entered service in the mid-1960s built by American Car and Foundry. The cars handle loads such as grain, corn and similar bulk commodities. The Centerflow relies on the car’s rounded body to provide structural strength without the added weight of bracing, as well as making gravity unloading easier. This 3-bay car came in a 4,600-cubic foot capacity. The railroads looking to replace their aging 40’ box cars in grain service needed a modern hopper design. One that could operate within the tighter Plate B clearances for light branchline and industrial service. ACF’s design won them many contracts from a plethora of railroads. One can find these cars still in revenue service today in grain trains and other similar service.
