BLU-66162 – 2-Bay Offset Side Hopper: Litchfield & Madison 2 Pack

Litchfield & Madison was a 44 mile railroad linking Madison, Illinois (across the Mississippi River from St. Louis) and Litchfield. They funneled through traffic from Chicago & North Western and Illinois Central to the St. Louis area and loaded coal from large deposits along the line. This group of offset side hoppers was built just after America?s entry into the Second World War. For some reason, the order seemed to have been split between cars with Wine-style corner pleats (favored by C&NW and featured on our models) and Enterprise-style pleats (favored by IC.) The L&M was merged into Chicago & North Western in 1958.
