SNY Hopper
These were the New York Central System's variation on the 1905 Common Design hopper, the primary differences being the pressed shapes used for the side and end sills, and the three end sheet supports. NYCS (but not P&LE, interestingly) received cars to this design from 1909 to 1917. Many were 10 feet tall at the top of the sides, but some were 10'6".
