Hi List Members,
 
End view of hopper PRR 201390 (Looking west from City Fuel Building, Mattapan) in 1928
 
PRR 201390 is part of series 200200-219957, which was a mix of PRR class GL and GLc type cars
 
Note the coal load is not at all heaped, making me think it has been partially unloaded. There is nothing to make me think there is any easy way to unload via the hopper doors, so was this car going to be emptied via shovel?

Enjoy!
