COVERED HOPPER ORDERS ZOOM
Transporting the carryover from the 1976-1977 season first in severe weather and then on top of an export boom for 1978 crops has confronted railroads with a record demand for grain transportation which has been handled satisfactorily. The demand has produced a sharp upturn in orders for new covered hopper cars. Statistics include grain in storage, port unloadings, covered hopper orders/deliveries and crop production over past five years with 1978 projections.
