Looking For A New RailKing Airslide Hopper? It's Not Too Late To Order

January 24, 2023 - The early-order deadline for the 2023 RailKing O Gauge Airslide Hoppers is today. If you have not yet placed your orders for these cars, please do so as soon as possible. The hoppers will be available in four exciting paint schemes and will be produced in very limited quantities, so don't miss out. The cars are expected to begin shipping to M.T.H. Authorized Retailers in May 2023.

Check out each of these offerings HERE.

These items are available to order from your local M.T.H. Authorized Retailer.


General American Transportation Corporation produced more than 5,000 4180 cubic foot Airslide covered hoppers between 1963 and 1980 as a response to customer demand for larger covered hoppers capable of handling bulk commodities. These very common cars continued General American’s "Airslide" family innovations from the 1950s and proved valuable to bulk shippers who wanted a larger car than the earlier-design 2600 cubic foot cars provided.

In an Airslide covered hopper, the bays are formed into two narrow, steep-sided troughs with a layer of air-permeable material at the bottom. Air is pumped through the material causing the load to fluidize and flow easily through the hopper outlets.
