Executive Hopper Desk (light version)


Project Boxcar Series

NYC 627519 & CSXT 823039

The slimmed down version of our Executive Style Hopper Desk is pure Americana and a slice of railroading history!

Crafted from a salvaged coal car and a steel coil railcar, this desk represents the ultimate conversation piece for the industrialist’s executive office. Historically the weather and distress on the car remins authentic to its final day of service

Each piece we craft is individually unique - even more so with the pieces from our Project Boxcar series. 

  • 76" x 30" x 30" (WxDxH)
  • Mahogany desktop (solid 1-1/2" thick)
  • Hand-finished reclaimed wood
  • Steel base from decommissioned coal hopper

Please note: We offer this as an exclusive opportunity. As such, this piece is only through private offering.


We crafted the wooden desktop from the mahogany wood decking of a retired New York Central steel coil car. 

We hand selected our wood for the desktop before hand-applying a tongue-oil finish that makes the grain of the rare hardwood shimmer. 


We created the base from two sections of a retired CSX coal hopper, a Raceland Hopper H-48 manufactured in 1971 that gives the desk its name. The long history of this rolling stock is evident in the distress from decades of service. After cleaning the years of accumulated grit and dirt, we coat the surfaces with an environmentally friendly finish.


A certificate of authenticity accompanies the desk detailing the known story of the artifacts and is signed by Rail Yard Studios Founder Robert Hendrick.
