  The ex-GN hoppers on the Sierra that are used for ballast service are
the early ones from the Mesabi range.  The GN replaced them with
cars more suited to their Ore service and sold them off to whoever
would buy them.  Ballast service is less 'demanding' than ore service
so they lasted a long time and often changed hands.
