Seaboard covered hopper car # SCB 200000 is at the Rocky Mount depot(actually bus station). Its very unusal, platform at each end and three axle trucks. Anyone know the details about this car? Looks like its to be perserved.

Tom, Full details are on our web site under the News section, http://www.aclsal.org/news/News.html, "Whopper Hopper Update." SBD 200000 (ex SCL 500000, nee ACL 500000) was recently acquired by the NC DOT for preservation and moved to Rocky Mount, where it will undergo a complete cosmetic restoration to as-delivered ACL paint and lettering.
