HO H22 Hopper Car Kits & RTR

In Stock and Pre order Items


The H-22a was a converted H-22 coke car. The H-22 was originally built with clam shell doors but were converted to saw tooth doors as shop repairs were required. This conversion did not cause a class change so either type of doors could be found at various times. The conversion to class H-22A began in 1923. This conversion replaced the coke slats with solid panels above the belt line and placed the car on 70 ton Crown trucks. Carrying capacity was increased to 140,000 pounds of coke. 3671 H-22A's were converted by 1930. After 1930 the H-22 class cars were scraped instead of any further upgrades.


Circle Keystone Lettering was applied starting in Jan 1930

Shadow Keystone lettering was applied starting in June 1954

Plain Keystone (black car) was applied starting in July 1956

PRR Initials only started in early 1960's
