The PRR always had a shortage of PRR hoppers, so they had a policy like it,

And you also rarely saw C&O hoppers on the PRR, but plenty of C&O gons.
Nowhere near the "statistical" proportions indicated by total numbers,

Thanks for you reply.
I've heard that some roads like C&O requested that their hoppers be returned
empty and not loaded off line. Do you know of other roads with this policy?
I can't recall seeing a C&O hopper in any SE anthracite region photos.
