The Quebec, North Shore & Labrador hopper car was issued in 1982, with no car number silkscreened on the car’s body. One hundred nine units were produced, plus one colour reversed variation.
Snap in coal loads were available through McCoy Trains manufacturing, although these loads were not sold as part of the car.
This Standard Gauge hopper with optional load was produced with a white and red body, with black detail lettering. Type O trucks.
The cost was $ 40.00 US plus shipping. Delivery to members was completed in 1982.
