Thanks. I went through a goodly portion of the images searched under railroad and coal. Mostly 50-ton hops and gons. It would be interesting to know which plants these larger cars were pushed/pulled up to and loaded.

I'm looking for pictures of C&O 100000-100999 series high capy gons in
the yards, in the coal fields, or at the coal docks taken between 1921
and 1946. I have builders and tech journal prints plus Raceland AMC
May 1931 repaint photos already.
I did a quick scan at the West Virginia & Regional history on-line collection here:
I only searched using 'Tipple' as a parameter. I noted C&O gons in several images, but none
from the series you requested. I only did a quick check. You may want to peruse this archive
with more diligence.
