Beginning in the late 50s, wood chips went from something to be disposed of to a valuable commodity. Since wood chips are less dense than coal, gravel and other hopper loads, many railroads added high extensions to standard hoppers for this service. The extentions were simple affairs, either rib sided or flat sided that were welded to the top chords of standard hoppers. Like our coal hoppers, these N scale models will come ready-to-run with knuckle couplers, and loads.

Boston & Maine Offset Side Wood Chip Hopper with Flat Side Extensions. In 1964 Boston & Maine purchased a modest fleet of used hoppers, added flat steel extensions and assigned them to wood chip loading in Woodsville, New Hampshire. As the New England region's largest railroad, Boston & Maine relied heavily on traffic for the paper industry.
