I don't know but I'd take a guess that it was all coal.

They also saw service running across the Western Pacific to Keddie CA. where
they turned north for delivery up in Washington, via a route thru Klamath
Falls.  I think they went to Spokane but my recollection is a bit fuzzy on
that.

As chance would have it I'm in the middle of creating a 3d CAD model of this
car (having the original blueprints from the Pressed Steel Car company is
handy).  If anyone is interested in seeing some screenshots I'd be glad to
pop some into the photo library.
