Re: PRSL Hoppers


I saw one back in 1959 and have been kicking myself ever since for not taking a picture of it. It was at the wye in South Woodbury and yes, was MofW gray, with the PRSL letters arranged diagonally, and a number which I cannot recall for certain, but I believe was in the low 200s (201? 202?).

PRSL work equipment pictures seem to be among the rarest of all pictures; very seldom see any. Because I lived in Sewell I managed to get a fair number, but many cars eluded me, and the hoppers were among them.

I know it is a long shot. Does anyone have any photos of PRSL hoppers? They
appear to be GLc, GLca or GLcb mostly likely in M O W gray. They lurked in
the background at Cold Spring Harbor as best as I can tell. I have 2 OK
partial photos but would really like photos of just the cars if possible. I
have 2 heavily reworked American Flyer cars that look like a GLca and are
going to get dunked and repainted.

Conversely I have seen photos of N&W, B&O and a H21 in the same spot.

Thank You,
