Meant to add that Funaro and Camerlengo make a model of this car.

Tim: That's part of a series of CNJ 8 rib 9 panel hopper cars built around 1920 or so, some of which were later leased to the B&O. Note that the apex of the center slope sheets terminate in the middle of a side panel, not on a center rib.

Would you call this a USRA clone? (very slightly different)
Also, why no B&O class designation? (W-whatever)
