This is Bluford Shops 14143 14Pnl 3by 70T Hpr PC/3. 70-ton 14-panel 3-bay hopper, 3-pack, ready to run. Penn Central (black, small logo). The AAR had a standard 70 ton rib side hopper, however New York Central made changes to the AAR design in 1956, and their variation became popular with more railroads than the original AAR standard. These cars were lower and shorter than later 90 and 100 ton cars but had more ribs (making for 14 full length panels.) Thirteen of the fifteen ribs were welded in place instead of riveted. These cars were built by a number of builders from 1956 through the late 60s with many serving through the 1990s and perhaps beyond...

Penn Central inherited their sizable fleet of these hoppers from New York Central who instigated the original design. Since the Penn Central era coincided with the ACI tag era, all PC cars, these models included, carry the multi-color bar codes on their sides. These cars joined the Conrail fleet in 1976. This roadname will be available in 12 road numbers.
