For this discussion it should be known that "Disco" was a processed product made by Consolidated Coal Co from coal.  It was not an individual mine, but was made in a processing plant.  As far as the Montour Railroad went, they had two groups of hoppers in their fleet.  One set were cars which never left their property and hauled "green" coal from the mines to the coal cleaning plant and a second group of cars used in interchange service.  The first group was liable to include almost anything since they were used in captive industrial service.  If you are interested in finding more about Disco, search "Disco coal" in Google.
