In 1958 the cars were purchased from GATC and renumbered 55000-55009. Then it would purchase 10 additional cars in 1963, 55010-55019, they were used for bulk flour transport from Buffalo.

 
Prior to this purchase, in 1962 the LV sub-leased 19 additional airslides from 3 sources;
10 cars from General Mills, numbered GACX 42598, 42898, 43357, 43358, 43359, 43360, 43361, 43362, 43363 & 43364
5 cars from Pillsbury, numbered GACX 43327, 43328, 43329, 43330 & 43331

Pictured below is LV 52507, a 49' 7", 3-bay covered hopper used for grain transport. The Lehigh Valley would purchase 10 (Series 52500-52509) of the PS2, 4000 cu ft covered hoppers from Pullman-Standard in 1963, they would appear on the roster only until sometime in late 71, early 72.

Concur! It certainly a great surprise to include the Engineering drawing sheets...
 
Your writer has seen this style of Equipment Diagrams long ago. The local transit company here had similar Drawings for each and  
every type of rolling stock it operated. Some conjecture here. Suspect the Drawings may have been an agreed industry standard,  
so to support uniform records for various regulatory agencies, and  other purposes?
