Re: Southeeastern Hopper Questions

First regarding George's response I don't think the Interstate owned any USRA twin hoppers or copies of same.

Second, the Athearn Rib Side Twin Hopper is very close to several thousand cars owned by the Southern, requiring the bead along the bottom sill be removed to be accurate.

I can imagine mixed in with the hoppers would be L&N, Southern, CRR, and C&O 40-foot high side gondolas. L&N owned 10,000 of them; the Southern approx, 5,000. CRR 300. Do not know C&O numbers.
