You will find photos on Trainlife site. Rail Model Journal - October, 2002 issue. I have not yet read the article. Seems like a simple kit -bash. Caption under photo says 1948 car order.

I've seen photos of LV hoppers with the LV emblem AND a stenciled car number,
but I've never seen a photo of one with the number inside the emblem! When was
LV 19000 built?
Champ decals actually made the 10" herald for the hoppers: HH-281

I recently saw a photo in a magazine of a Lehigh Valley 19000 series ribbed offset-side hopper that had its end number painted in a black diamond. It was car number 19000. Did any other roads use their herald on the end of their cars?
