    Default BNSF Taconite Hopper #645782

    BNSF 3-Bay All-Rail Taconite Hopper, based on the TS' Mullan 3-bay coke hopper, for use on the U-KEEMAD9-12 taconite loads from the Iron Range of MN, to Madison, Indiana. A nice way to replicate the train on the below screenshot.



    A closer look, might add details later IDK.

    The ribs on the texture don't seem to align with the 3D ribs on the car shape.

    Yeah, I've noticed that. It uses a blank texture for the old ATSF 3-bay hopper that I just put on the new coke hopper shape.

    I have the BNSF dimensions/plans for the two bay taconite car ... Ed's Trains has modeled it in the BNSF ORE Set...another version might be in the library, not sure about that. Just throwing that in the thread...anyone interested, PM me...pdf is too large to attach zip here.

    Nice work Zach.
    Cheers, Gerry
