Hopper Cars (3 of 5)
Lionel made 33 Hoppers under the American Flyer name between 1979 and 2003. Because there are so many hopper cars, I have split them up over four web pages:

Gilbert hoppers #632 through #719 are
page 1
                       #801 through #25060 are on
page 2
Lionel hoppers  #9200 through #48605 are on this page
                       #48608 and above are on
page 4
Hoppers made by S-Helper Service and American Models are on
page 5

Unless otherwise specified, the large pictures on this page are of cars in the collection of The Upstairs Train.

If you have a picture that you would like to share with the world of any of the cars not shown here (or a better picture of one that is shown!), email them to me: theupstairstrain@yahoo.com.
