Re: Cars that shouldn't be in Kline & Culotta's book

Referring to perhaps unusual consists of foreign road hopper cars, C&O Power by Staufer shows on pg 97 a long string of Virginian hoppers being pulled by C&O 2759 through Catlettsburg, KY [ wonder where that is? ]. The caption notes that prior to the N&W merger with Virginian, C&O ran a daily train of VGN MTies out of Russell bound for coal field interchange at Gilbert Yard, WV.

Of course, this is not saying that the VGN cars received coal from mines off VGN tracks.
