From Eric Neubauer’s early Pullman builder’s document, I see that OWC&I 2000-2199 were built by Pullman under lot C1466 in 1887, probably 33 feet long.
It also appears that the Ohio and Western Coal and Iron was one of those Gilded Age companies that lived and died fairly quickly based on financial shenanigans. I see mention of the Columbus Hocking Valley and Toledo in some of the articles and they may have been the inheritors of OWC&I 2000-2199.
Hope this is helpful.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] Picture help?
This morning I was asked if I had a photo or any information on the gon to the right in this photo. It appears to be lettered for the Ohio & Western Coal & Iron Co. Which was a company registered in New York state, and which failed in 1899 after some lawsuits.
Can anyone help?
