Re: Interstate RR Hoppers

The Interstate car in this photo looks like a GLa, at least from the
ends. The photo was a small snapshot, so it's not going to get much
better. The Interstate hopper is the second car.

That's one of the early-1920s foot-taller Gla clones. Interstate was by
far the major user of that version, though some were built for industrial
users in 1920 and found their way to Illinois Terminal 4100-4149 (ex-West
Penn Power), NYO&W 17000-17039, and perhaps GB&W.
