The 1948 CNJ promo film "The BIG Little Railroad" clearly shows a CB&Q two pocket outside stake hopper with "Everywhere West" lettering in amongst a cut of PRR and NYC (and other locals) hoppers in the Allentown (PA) yard.

The same film also shows a black MoPac hopper with the buzzsaw clearly visible in an amongst a cut of mostly NYC hoppers in the vicinity of the Hometown (Pa) bridge, the narrator describes this scene as "from this connection comes Bitumionous Coal from western Pennsylvania".

Now THAT is a bit strange. Almost weird. They were perhaps lost?
