Montour twin hopper M 8014


David
 

The January 1940 ORER shows a series 8000-8099, with a full 100 cars. The inside length is 30'5" and the outside length is 32'3", both characteristic of the Gla design. The 10'2" eaves height and 1732 cf capacity strongly suggest this series is ex-Clinchfield, which dispersed its Gla-type hoppers to a number of secondhand owners around this time. The series was down to 10 cars by 1945.
