Thank you very much for your response. I suspected that the NP purchased
these hoppers second hand but never had any documentation. With this
information can hopefully find some documentation.

I looked around, and the only Pressed Steel order that fits is a batch of 90
cars for Cumberland & Pennsylvania ordered in 1921, which were gone from C&P
