There's one thing you can say about the Lehigh Valley - they keep you guessing when it comes to their rebuilds.  Just start researching the cars they rebuilt into covered hoppers if you don't believe it.

Doesn't the side design differ from the car pictured in the 1930s article? If so, does this car represent a rebuilt rebuild with new sides?
The link to the photo of 42060 is at:

Very interesting in that this one was rebuilt with seven side stakes instead of six as shown in the photos of the other two examples.  This one does show the train line along the side sill.

Thank you for the answers to my query and the leads to another photo.

"If the question about the air line is in reference to the rebuilt cars (42000 series) the attached photo of 42060 posted by Ray Stillwell on the LV forum might help."

Can you post a link to the photo or upload the photo to the group website?  The list is set to strip attachments.
