These plans for a WW&F Hopper Car, created in 1901 were sent by Stewart Rhine. I created the "blueprint" look to make the lines and dimensions more apparent. Since this reduced image is only 278kb I thought it would be ok to post it here.

Thanks alot for posting the plans.
Can they be easily modified to show the dimensions in a readable form?
I am intrigued by the car and would like to see the 12"=1' version.

That looks much like a gondola. That would be great, if we could build a hopper car that looks like a gondola, witht the dump peice under the car. I like the looks of that blue print.
