Well, CURRENT IM models have different sill steps and a few other minor differences.

and scroll down a LOT.


I’ve seen that sort of  “protective packaging” before which I think should assist in identifying the manufacturer.

Looks like an Intermountain model.  I have one and it checked out nicely with prototype photos.

I am attaching a photo of a C&O class “LO” hopper model gifted me.  Number and other lettering appear to be accurate for a 70 hopper in the series the hopper is in.  I am asking if the black color is correct or should it be gray?   And, who produced the hopper?  Thank you for your time and effort to help in advance.
