Blowing up the photo the reweigh date is 3-53 the location P37 which is one of the scales at PRR Juniata shops supporting the supposition that these were built by the PRR

Subject: [STMFC] ASRX 501 – Domino Sugar Hopper

I understand this car was converted from a PRR X-29 boxcar into a hopper car for sugar.  The conversion was done about 1953.
Does anyone know who did the conversion and if the design was adopted for additional cars?
