Based on Eric's reply, some of these C of G cars might have made it to places like Minneapolis & St Paul.  If that is the case I could model one for a CB&Q train on the C&I branch (Aurora. IL to Twin Cities) of the "Q".  Now if I could only get some good plans I might just be able to scratch build on of these in O-Scale Proto 48!  Oh, yes, where to find decals for these PS-2 two bay covered hoppers in O-Scale?

Good point Eric, just because you're not a C of G modeler doesn't mean you can't justify one or more of these cars on your layout.

Actually, much of the kaolin for coating paper was used in New Engand and the northern Midwest. The central Georgia region was the primary source.

Dave,

In the Southeast, a lot of kaolin was used in papermaking. My understanding is that kaolin is what gives paper that smooth finish, as opposed to newsprint, etc.

I am not a C of G modeler but have found this thread most informative.  Since I didn't know what kaolin was, nor what it could be used for, I had to resort to Google as my friend.  http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/science-medicine/kaolin   So now I know it is most commonly found in the US in Georgia and is used most often in the production of white china.
