There is on very small photo with hoppers in it.
Since this line was affiliated with the PRR most of the cars were built by the PRR and follow PRR designs - GG Gla GLaC etc. AFAIK they never had any GLD (USRA) class hoppers.

Hi Lester and List Members,
Lester wrote "The small data sheet states the hoppers were acquired from Westmoreland Coal Company via Hyman- Michaels"
I have two questions:
(1) Does anyone know, did Westmoreland own any USRA hoppers (or copies)? If so, does anyone know of any references (online or offline) to images of these?
(2) Does anyone know of any published articles or other information regarding Westmoreland Coal and Coke and their railroad operations in general? I've seen more than one such article on Berwind, but have seen nothing that I can recall regarding Westmoreland...
