Re: Hoppers?

Here are coal deliveries to two small towns in central Iowa in 1949, and
where the car came from. Dallas Center and Minburn are on the line between
Des Moines and Fort Dodge. Note a variety of cars hauling coal, including
one C&O car to each town, both coming from W Va. The coal was delivered to
the local elevator in each town, most likely used for home heating or local
businesses. Most of the coal came from Ill, though other states are
represented.
