Perhaps these GLa copies were specifically purchased for dedicated service to this one mine for some unknown reason. If the cars were being loaded with coal at the Disco mine, and were also delivering their load of coal to some online destination, then the archbar trucks might not have been an issue since the cars would never leave Montour tracks.
Another thought ... the caption states that DISCO was a preparation plant so it potentially received coal from other mines for washing and grading. This would be a natural need for an online fleet of hoppers.
