Greenbrier tests US type grain hoppers in Brazil
Author: pedrop

Hi, Greenbrier/Maxion made a couple of cylindrical grain hoppers like the ones we common see in BNSF to test by VLI broad gauge system. Here they received the class HTT.

Those do look nearly the same, and so strange to see them next to a U20C.

I like the Rumo one, but it makes the engine look tiny.

130,000 kg = 286,000 lbs so their gross maximum weight is identical to North American cars.
