Built in September of 1957, this PS-2 hopper with Bettendorf trucks was purchased by Baltimore & Ohio in an order of 600 cars. The Pullman-Standard all-welded steel, 2,003 cubic-foot two bay covered hopper would become one of the most popular cars of its type with railroads and private industry. It was designed to haul everything from powdered chemicals, to grains, to construction materials such as sand or cement.
