SP Cement Hoppers

MaineLines just released his long awaited 70 ton cement hopper. Not only is this model superbly detailed, it comes in the SP livery. This saves me the time of trying to repaint them (though I will need to do Cotton Belt). You can download this model at RWA.

There was an industry on my route which used these hoppers, its a cement silo (storage most likely) in Union City, and its a small branch off the mainline. I already had plans on reviving that industry as its one of those land marks that I remember back to my childhood.

Here is a picture of a short haul running down to Santa Clara with a couple of these in the middle.
