    I'm after some info on what types of coal cars CP has used (particularly during the 1959 - 1975 period that I model.

    Am interested mainly in the pre pacman era but will look at anything up to 1975. Also what models in N Scale are available. Are the new Atlas 70ton tubs suitable for hauling coal or was it just other cargos?

    Thanks in advance

    Towards the end I know 90 tons like the ones Atlas makes were used (maybe 1965+?) I know in the earlier days they used the quad hoppers Bachman makes...There are 90 tons still out there today and the quad hoppers made it into the early 80's I believe as some were the in "Pacman" scheme. Hope thisd helps...
