Does anyone have something documenting who built N&W 12000-12499 class Hu coal hoppers circa 1923?

 

Thanks in advance,

Steve Hile

Steve,

According to Norfolk and Western Coal Cars, by Andrew Dow, that number series (12000 - 12999) was built by American Car & Foundry in 1922 at a cost of $1,900.00 per car.
