Roughly when were the H10 hoppers built?
1956 (single prototype), production 1957 thru the unmentionable next zero-year.

Total cars built = 8000. Less than I thought, but still a sizeable hunk of the fleet.

N&W was still mostly a steam railroad at the time, so they qualify as steam era cars by any criteria, even though many were still in service by the time the space shuttle was flying.
