Were any of the Carbon County Railway hopper cars of this same design? I know

they had the same double clasp brakes as found on other United States Steel road hoppers.

  Whoa Tim. The B&M acquired what I was told were some ex-B&LE hoppers for gravel or

ballast work in the 1968-1972 era that definitely had double clasp brakes. Being too late for

my modeling interests I paid little attention to them. Should I have? Could these also have

been of the car type being discussed?
