Missouri Pacific (MP) 1979 “As Delivered” paint scheme—June delivery: This is the first time the Screaming Eagle paint scheme has been offered on the 3737/3716 car. However, we have taken this paint scheme a step further in that it is being offered in two variations. One for the cars delivered in May of 1979, and a second for cars delivered in June 1979. 

The Bethlehem 3737/3716 Hopper is an icon railcar of the last quarter century. With over 10,000 units produced, this is one of the most prolific, Western steel hoppers of last 40 years.
