Try the C&O Hopper book by Al Kresse. As to the paint scheme, if the cars went through the paint shop after 1948, they would have had the C&O for Progress herald on them. Now the bad news.  Most if not all C&O USRA hoppers, both two and three bay were being scrapped by 1954 and the railroad had a major shortage of hopper cars.
