Larry Smith asked:
... the BC&G had two types of
hoppers. The 1000 series is definitly Gla style while the 1700
series
looks like a USRA clone. First does anyone have a 1925 ORER and can
look up how many cars were in the 1700 series and what is the data
on
them...
The April 1925 ORER lists the two classes:

Steel Hopper, P.R.R. type..Gla 1001 to 1600, il 30'5", iw 9'6",
outside length 32'3", width 10' 1 3/8", height to eaves 10'0" overall
ht 10' 9 3/4", capy 1682 cuft, 100000 lb, 600 cars

Hopper 1601 to 1900, il 30'5", iw 9'6", outside length 32'3", width
10' 1 3/8", height to top of platform or running board 10'8" overall
ht 10' 9 3/4", capy 1817 cuft, 110000 lb, 300 cars

These go back to at least May 1923 in the ORER.
