Re: Nice images of NYC, P&LE, and PMcK&Y hoppers...

The hoppers are USRA design triples, which Westerfield still makes in HO.  Longacre is at the east end of Smithers (I actually have a book on Smithers).  This was an area that produced good coking cola.  The Cannelton Coal & Coke Company was a big producer and started in 1857.  There are some interesting photos and information at this website: http://www.coalcampusa.com/sowv/kanawha/cannelton/cannelton.htm .
