Re: Depression era / pre-WWII Covered Hoppers?


The Lehigh Valley May 1932 ORER lists 30 hoppers (#s50000 to 50029) as “Special Type, Steel Hatchway Roof, Hop. Bot.”  with LO designation.

The series shows up in July 1931 ORER as “Cement,  Steel, Hopper Bottom” as #50000 thru 50017, but have no designation.
