I had mentioned last year that there is a need for a model of this style.

I cannot back up my assertion with info that I have in front of me. But perhaps those on this list modelling other roads can?
If the IC only moved coal to CN/GTW for loco use, there'd be no justification for the sizeable fleet of hoppers that the IC had. And no justification for an accurate model of them. With this premise, you'd be correct as to an accurate HO model having zero possbility of production with this alone in mind.
Other roads would have seen these cars as well--which is why I ask modellers of those roads to chime in. Seems to me that more roads than CN/GTW got loco coal from mines served by the IC. As for Alburg, VT, this location would have been a little far afield for IC hoppers to travel when loco coal was available from mines in the Appalachians.
And these IC's two- and three-bay hoppers were far more numerous than the GN's Canton-built hoppers.
