Hey Guys,
I'm looking for information on the Roundhouse "Nebraska" series of covered hoppers.
In particular how many different towns were represented, both model and actual.
I've started to collect them and it has become somewhat of an obsession.
What a great way to make sure the bank account doesn't get too fat... :rolleyes:

Last couple months I went crazy collecting coal hoppers. Among several other brands, ended up with five roundhouse open hopper kits I'm still finishing up. Now considering adding new covered hopper obsession. I like the small and medium rib-side two and three bay covered variety. So I will check out the Nebraska Series and see what they are about. Earlier in life I collected full size motorcyles which are all sold compared to those, N scale locomotives and rolling stock are much less hassle and expense, easier on my sore back........and huge fun too!
