About Cole hopper car / kohletrichterwagen by Pieter Post

Prussian Trichterwagen / Selbstentlader (self-unloader) car for coal transport of the Bauart (OOt). The manufacture year was 1904. These cars have an own weight of 17,950 kg and a loading capacity of 38 ton. At first I wanted to build the Bavarian dark green rendition but due to parts availability I ended up with a reddish brown Prussian type. The four axled diamond trucks we’re based on an American design. Same as my Lego rendition, inspiration came from Glenn and Cale.
