Hi List Members,

I've looked over the hopper car that is inside the scale house in the image below, and it looks to be a PRR class GLa twin hopper.

Eric, the fact that they are "still have their 'new' stenciling" shouldn't
be surprising, as these photos are from the late teens or early 20s. Thanks
for the ID on the WSB reporting marks.

Here's another image from the El-Steamtown collection that was posted today.

At the far right is a pair of hoppers marked as WSB. These are West Side
Belt cars from a Pittsburgh area short line that would be folded into the
Pittsburgh & West Virginia. This offers a good view of interesting
Enterprise hopper doors. Note these cars were built in 1917 and still have
their NEW stenciling. Lots of grime is covering this car.
The car ahead of the WSB hoppers looks like it could be a B&O N-10 class
hopper car.
