Our Quick Pic Book series shows the subjects in extensive black & white
photographs which have often been digitally edited to best exhibit the details.
The two bay hoppers were built in 2 versions, The original batch was built by
the Pressed Steel Car Company and the later batch by the Orbisonia Shops of the EBT using the PSCC cars as a pattern. The 3 bay steel hoppers were for the
most part originally 2 bay cars that were stretched which is why the numbering sequence is not in exact order. This book shows the details of each version in separate chapters. There is the standard hopper bottom cars, the side discharge cars, and the cars with flat bottom hoppers. The Friends of the EBT had just finished restoring side discharge car #802 as this book neared completion.
Note it is on the cover and has arch bar trucks instead of the more common
Vulcan cast steel type most of the EBT freight car fleet rides upon.
