To those who might be interested, there's an excellent, detailed article on the Central Vermont's 30000/20000-series twin hoppers in the latest issue of the Central Vermont Railway Historical Society Ambassador. Although the CV's boxcars are fairly well-documented, the hopper cars, some of which went through 3 or 4 rebuildings over the years, have not been covered as well in print. Well worth reading.

Also included are some roster shots dating from 1963 or so of a number of pieces of CV and StJ&LC M-of-W equipment from George Melvin.
