Ian Wilson's books have photos of US coal hoppers in various Ontario locations in the '50's. NYC for sure.

Was it not fairly common to see carloads of coal from both the NYC and D&H in
southwestern Quebec at least with each of those two roads having their own line
to at least Montreal? Also, would it be save to assume that most coal coming from
Nova Scotia would have come in CNR hoppers? I do not know if the S&L had any
hoppers that were used interline service or not but with Springhill and the Cape
Breton areas both being connected to the outside rail world only by the CNR would
expect few other hoppers were used. Your thoughts?
