Read Blaine Hadfield's article on the committee design hopper in this edition of the Rio Grande Historical Society's quarterly publication, The Prospector. 

This article gives an in-depth historical overview of the committee design car, as outlined in the product pages of the models for sale. And, it develops the proposition that nothing influenced the character of the D&RGW fleet of steel hopper more than the design decisions made by the Chesapeake & Ohio, Pennsylvania Railroad and Norfolk & Western.

This article features photography of the C&O, PRR, and N&W prototypes, as well as a host of D&RGW prototype photos, diagrams and builder's reports.
