      Rivet Counter N Scale 4727 Carbon Black Covered Hopper, Sid Richardson/SRCX (R2)

      Carbon black is a fine, black, powdery substance used as a filler in tires, belts, and other rubber products as well as pigment for inks, paints, and plastics.

      The 4727 cubic capacity carbon black hopper closely resembles a traditional covered hopper.  However, they feature unique “butterfly” outlet gates, 22 or 28 round loading roof hatches, and sampling spigots.  First built in 1992, many of these cars continue in service today.
