New hot metal cars

D&D Mining & Steel took delivery of 4 new hot metal cars. The following pictures are from the yard and one from the yard tower. With the new blast furnace and electric furnace up and running these are much-needed cars. Each car is different due to being tested in the mill to see which design will best work within the mill.

The cars are a combination of ST&D cars and spouts and Walthers cars. One car is a stock ST&D car while the Walthers car is stock except for the spout. The other 2 cars have the end platform changed out with each manufacturer. The paint is aluminum color.
