      Problem about doing 35n2 hopper cars is the cost. To get an idea I've
      scaled up the freelance Hon30 hopper I do - that works out at $50 per car.
      http://shpws.me/jzwN The wood version works out about $10 more

      I think the Glipin car is a bit smaller but not much, that ones is about
      15ft long.

      I've no drawings for the Silver City car, has anyone got some I could use?
