The 6076 Lehigh Valley and Santa Fe (ATSF) hoppers of the early 1960s had a brief appearance in the Lionel family. Neither roadname is common and each will require some time to locate. However, collector interest in these hoppers is minimal and prices are generally reasonably.

The Lehigh Valley was catalogued from 1961 to 1963. However, in an effort to move unsold inventory, Lionel included this hopper in several uncatlogued 1964 and 1965 sets!

The Santa Fe is an uncatalogued item from 1963 and 1964. This is one of a few postwar hoppers to have a roadname other than Lehigh Valley.

All 6076 hoppers are part of the short hopper series and were produced only as two bay hoppers. This is in contrast to the larger quad hoppers which have four bays and are 1 1/2" longer.

Standard features of the 6076 vary depending upon the variation. Below is a summary of each 6076 hopper:

The length of the 6076 hopper is approximately 9 1/2" long (coupler to coupler).

Lehigh Valley - Red version shown in the photo above - Available in either red, black or gray. The black and gray are harder to find than the red version.
