    It varied over time. I don't recall offhand when those were new, but evidences I've seen indicates that new hopper fleet began being delivered in black paint. (With a small outline Coonskin herald on the side.)

    By the end of the 1950s, I've seen pictures of them painted freight car red and the large black w/white outline Coonskin.

    The scheme you illustrate was the last scheme I remember seeing them in. I think I recall they began to phase out that series of cars as the 1970s deepened.

    What era are you modeling?

    Ethan don't buy any decals yet. I may have just what you need. And the price will be right.

    Roughly speaking, 1980. I know by that point the 100 ton 3 bay hoppers had mostly taken over, but I've got some areas I can use a fleet of 2 bay hoppers for.
